The Center for Visual Art (CVA) presents "Paper Work," an exhibition reflecting the transformation of paper, a common two-dimensional material, into three-dimensional sculptural or implied pieces.
Exploring the limits of agility and strength, in the hands of the artists, paper becomes emblematic of tenacity and transformation. “I work with handmade paper specifically for its minimal environmental impact, its utter versatility, its enormous variety and its strength contrasted with its perceived fragility,” said Chicago artist Melissa Jay Craig. In addition to Craig, other artists featured in the exhibit are Jennifer Ghormley, Anne Hallam, Bovey Lee, Diane Martonis, Dawn McFadden, Liz Miller, Mia Pearlman and Susan Porteous.
