Opening Reception: Saturday, October 12 from 3pm to 5pm
Gallery 3700, housed in the Arlington Cultural Affairs building, presents Places in Paper this fall, an exhibit of the Guild of American Papercutters (GAP). The show features the work of thirty-four artists from seventeen states and Lithuania who all use cut paper in their artwork.
Visitors will see an astounding variety of papercutting, including Polish, Jewish, Indonesian, and Chinese styles, as well as photorealist, sculptural, and silhouette techniques. Many of the artists will attend the opening reception on October 12, during which visitors can vote for a People’s Choice award and posters about the history of papercutting will also be on display.
GAP board member and Arlington artist Melanie Kehoss curated the exhibit, with the help of jurors Anne Burton (gallery directory at Blackrock Center for the Arts) and Tamar Shadur (owner Shadur Arts), and support from Arlington County’s individual artist grant. In conjunction with the exhibit, Kehoss will teach a papercutting workshop in November through the Arlington Arts Enterprise Institute.
Gallery 3700 is located at 3700 Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington, VA.
