PAPIERS CHOISIS II (Chosen Papers II)
July 2 to August 28, 2016
Opening Saturday, July 2 -17h30
Works of Odon, Bernadette Chéné, and Maria Theresa Herbin.
These artists come from a family bound by the same need to create with simple materials from everyday life: newsprint, kraft paper … so they cut, folded, woven, wrinkled, braided, carved, transforming paper into a work of contemporary art.
In reference to our 2004 exhibition, “From fiber and yarn,” we take our research and discovery of talented artists and recognized by their innovative and amazing works in their design.
