Stan Meyer: Poetic Presence
June 1 – August 6, 2017
Upper Gallery
 
Stan Meyer creates flat-woven pieces out of roofing paper utilizing inspiration for patterns from Celtic, Maori, and various aboriginal cultures combined with patterns found in nature or contemporary architecture. His large-scale wall works are highly unique and combine artistic aesthetic reminiscent of the abstract expressionists with the handmade technique of fine craftspeople. 
 
Paper on Paper: The Art of Chine-Collé
June 1 – August 20, 2017
Theatre Gallery
 
This exhibition features the works of Mark Lunning, Ken Elliott, Jane Braley, Lynn Heitler, and Amy Metier - printmakers who utilize the technique of chine-collé in various ways. Chine-collé is a printmaking process that transfers a print onto both a support surface and thinner, more delicate papers which become a part of the printed image.
 
Paper.Works
June 1 – August 20, 2017
Main Gallery
 
Paper.Works includes the works of twenty artists who use paper as their artistic medium. From cast paper to cut paper, folded paper to handmade paper, this exhibition will include works that are innovative and intriguing.
