For many centuries, paper and paper-like materials such as vellum and papyrus have served as a central medium for artists.  The Paperworks exhibition explores the endless manipulation of paper-based art whether serving as a canvas or as the primary medium for the work itself.  The exhibition features twenty-one works from thirteen national artists.  An exhibition catalog and juror’s essay will be available for download soon!
