This exhibition of paper-cut art features a special opening reception with a lecture and demonstration on Sunday, February 24, 2-6 pm.
Zierlein’s symmetrical paper cuts are based around the concept of balance, power and equality. Join the illustrator and professor for a talk that focuses on paper-cut art and its historical and contemporary traditions around the world. In the workshop that follows, guests (ages 8 and up) will be invited to explore various paper cut techniques and create their own paper cut art. Linger for refreshments and musical entertainment by Peter Blanchette.
