Northwind Arts Center, the peninsula’s visual, literary and performance art hub, presents
Uncommon Paper - Lois James, Jean-Marie Tarascio, Dorothy
McGuinness, Danielle Bodine, Mary Ashton, Sande Wascher-James, and Zia Gipson
Two thousand years after the documented ‘first’ paper was created in China, seven artists
working in a variety of artistic traditions are still at it. Lois James, Jean-Marie Tarascio,
Dorothy McGuinness, Danielle Bodine, Mary Ashton, Sande Wascher-James, and Zia
Gipson, making 'Uncommon Paper', have thrown out the idea of paper as a mere
carrier for the written word or substrate for drawing, collage and paint. They make paper
the star of the show. In their hands paper becomes jewelry, light-catching banners,
sculpture, baskets, shelters, books and the vessels from which stories emerge.
The exhibition runs from May 2 nd through May 26th
Opening Reception and Art Walk Saturday, May 4th, from 5:30-8 p.m.
Art Talk –Sunday May 5th, 1:00 p.m.
