With PAPER 2019, Silvermine Arts Center introduces a new annual exhibition series designed to focus on a particular material and consider it in the broadest terms. Curated by Jennifer Farrell, Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Paper 2019—on view at Silvermine Galleries from April 3 to May 16—features prints, drawings, photographs, artists' books, and handmade paper as well as three-dimensional works made with paper.
"The aim of the exhibition," said Farrell "is to highlight the vitality, diversity, sense of experimentation and skillful execution, and the many ways in which contemporary artists approach this material." Finalists, all of whom are included in the exhibition, were chosen from over 400 submissions from almost every state in the U.S. The geographical spread gives the exhibition a national perspective. Roger Mudre, Silvermine Gallery Director, added, "Viewers will find a wide range of works made on or with paper, including sculpture and installations along with the traditional disciplines of drawing, painting, and photography."
Visitors to the Silvermine Galleries might be inspired to experience making art with paper themselves after seeing the different and intriguing ways contemporary artists are approaching this traditional material.
Concurrent with the PAPER 2019 exhibition, the Silvermine School of Art is hosting one and two-day workshops that explore special studies in paper arts including bookbinding, book art and garden journaling.
The following workshops are offered: Watercolors: Garden and Illustrative Journaling with Nancy McTague-Stock, Tues., April 16, 10 am to 4 pm;
Bookbinding: Artist Sketchbooks and Journals with Gavin Dovey, Sat. and Sun., May 4 and 5, 10 am to 3 pm;
Lisa Arnold's Art Journaling for teens age 11-15, Fri., May 10, 6:30 to 8:30 pm;
Altered Books, Transforming Old Books into New Art with Jane Lubin, Fri., May 17, 10 am to 4:15 pm.
No prior expertise is needed, and all are invited to attend. To register for any of the special workshops, prospective participants can visit the website or call the School of Art at (203) 966-6668 ext 2.
