CUT UP CUT OUT EXHIBITION July 6 - September 15, 2019 Tuesday - Friday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Saturday - Sunday 1:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Cut Up/Cut Out is an exhibition of national and international artists who explore captivating methods of decorative piercing and cutting, using a wide range of media from paper and plastic to metal and rubber. The transformative nature of cutting into and through a surface provides endless possibilities for converting the material from opaque to transparent, from flat to sculptural, from rigid to delicate, and from ordinary to exquisite. The process and precision required for this method of art-making is laborious, technically demanding, and always astonishing. This exhibition honors both innovation and tradition with a selection of over 100 artworks by 56 artists representing diverse styles and techniques.
Cut Up/Cut Out was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA.
