Turning cut paper into art....

Feathers,Fur,Fins - GAP National Museum Exhibition

22 Jul 2017 11:29 PM | Kathy Trexel Reed

Feathers, Fur, and Fins

GAP members’ twenty five paper cuttings interpreting the Feathers Fur Fins theme are attracting visitors to the Philip Dressler Center for the Arts, Somerset, PA. 
This exhibition will continue in the GAP Museum gallery on the second floor until April 2018. 

Some mysterious titles add surprise elements to the wide variety of already familiar creatures. “Mystic’s Voyage” by MJ Viano Crowe and “Rare Monogamy” by Melanie Kehoss, for example, are also unframed works with unique hanging systems. Sally Blakemore’s “China Journal” doesn’t “hang” at all; it is a zig zag book with 5 spreads extended on an eight foot table. Dr, Rosemarie Hebenstreit submitted her “Crane” from Austria, and it is the only entry this time from outside the USA. Harriet Rosenberg’s “Cabin Cutting“ and “Angels”, and Periphylla Plate” by Katie Maish may keep you wondering, unless you stop in person to see this collection of paper cuttings. But professional photographs of the artwork have been made and will be posted on the GAP website as soon as they are available. 

If you plan your visit to the GAP Museum for Saturday, August 26, you are invited to join GAP’s face to face meeting with participating new GAP board members.
