When we think of art, we often tend to think of a painting that hangs protected in a museum, or a sculpture, ever-present in a park. But art comes in many forms, changing with the times. In a time like no other, to close out 2021, Heights Arts is excited to present the Printers Select exhibition, running August 20 through October 17th.
“There is an urgent need for humanity to reconnect with nature in order to experience a harmonious and peaceful existence. I have been searching for a way to express this idea through my artwork and found it in paper making,” she explains. “Paper made from plants and recycled materials could be a sustainable solution to many ecological and economic problems the world is facing today. Using fiber that was sourced locally also contributes to my work conceptually by creating a connection between subject and place.”
The Printers Select exhibition runs in the Heights Arts gallery alongside the Spotlight Showcase featuring the work of print artist Nicole Schneider. Her work explores control and perfectionism through the lens of her familial relationships with other women, and how these relationships have influenced her relationship with motherhood. Visitors can view the exhibitions in-person at Heights Arts’ Lee Road gallery and sign-up for the accompanying Ekphrastacy-Artists Talk and Poets Respond series on September 23rd.
