Opening Reception: Saturday, October 28 from 6pm to 9pm

Kristina King and Jim Maio explore the art of paper through opposite techniques. Each of their practices engage them in an unfolding dialogue with the medium. King builds her textured and saturated surfaces from traditional hand paper making processes: layering, bonding, casting and blow outs. Maio deconstructs his layered textures from a process of decollage: building and tearing away, revealing hidden parts of paper covered and uncovered. Both arrive at an elegant and minimal expressionism.

Gallery Hours:

  • Saturdays & Sundays: 11am-3pm
