"Paired for Life 2" by Jo Stealey

Paper is so much a part of our everyday lives that perhaps we don’t pay enough attention to it.  Paper can be as mundane as the sticky note on your desk this morning or the daily paper you read last night.  The invention of papermaking changed our world and altered how we communicate. Paper Trails is a collection of contemporary sculptural works made from a variety of papermaking processes.  The works in this exhibition will change your perception of paper. The artists in this exhibition utilize paper making techniques to communicate their ideas in unique and innovative ways.


The regional artists in this exhibition are Jennifer Baker, Joan Hall, Tom Lang, Marie McInerney, Megan Singleton, and Jo Stealey. Megan Singleton and Joan Hall both create works that utilize forms from plant and sea life. Their works make social and political statements about how we treat our environment, touching on the fragility of our planet and raising our social consciousness.  Jo Stealey and Jennifer Baker approach their artwork as narrative, making the viewer stop and investigate further. They also recall the natural world through the forms and shapes of their pieces.  Marie McInerney and Tom Lang find inspiration and direction for their work from the rhythms of everyday life. Aware that life presents challenges and obstacles; their work challenges the viewer to respond.

Paper Trails leads us down a path of delight and discovery. In a world full of computer technology, paper continues to transform and impact our everyday lives, and to be a major source of communication and expression.
