works on paper


Art on Paper 2012 features regional, national and international artists who have produced significant works made on or of paper. Sixty-five artists were selected through submissions and by invitation. As a special feature this year, Curator of Exhibitions Xandra Eden formed an advisory committee of artists whose work was presented in Art on Paper (AOP) 2006, 2008, or 2010 to select the invitational portion of the exhibition. The committee includes: Tomory Dodge (AOP ‘08), Franklin Evans (AOP ‘06), Jiha Moon (AOP ‘08), Frank Selby (AOP ‘10), and Stacy Lynn Waddell (AOP ‘08). Each of these artists nominated five other artists to participate in this year’s biennial. 

Since 1965, the Weatherspoon’s Art on Paper exhibition has charted a history of art through the rubric of one-of-a-kind works on paper. Since its inception, the commitment of xpedx (formerly the Dillard Paper Company) and The Dillard Fund has allowed the Weatherspoon to acquire works from each and every Art on Paper exhibition, resulting in the formation and tremendous growth of the Dillard Collection, which today numbers nearly 600 works. Acquisitions have included work by some of art’s seminal practitioners, including Louise Bourgeois, Brice Marden, Joan Mitchell, Robert Smithson, Frank Stella and Eva Hesse.
