Last years Gallery night focus on paper was such a success, we’ve decided to bring it back, July 21, 2016.
We have three “Celebrity Guides” lined up, each of whom have a different relationship with the paper arts. Print maker and fiber artist Jules Burrowes returns to share her passion for paper and promises to have a tour full of surprises. We welcome painter Karen Rand Anderson who will be hosting her first Gallery Night tour, Karen paints on a variety of surfaces, and paper is one of them. And for our “Collectors Tour” we have Library Materials Conservator, Rachel Lapkin, Rachel will be able to answer many of your questions on taking care of artwork on paper, photographs, books, or anything else you may have that’s made of paper.
Paper Connection International will be joining us for Paper Night, owner Lauren Pearlman and her staff will be available to discuss paper making and the many types and origins of Asian papers and the Paper Connection Gallery will be showing recent works by Julie Brayton.
And the Dryden Gallery at Providence Picture Frame will be giving a demonstration on archival matting and hinging.
