Museum Exhibit: Cut and Paste

The state of Georgia has long been known for its five P’s in agriculture — poultry, peaches, peanuts, pecans and paper — but only one of these has attracted a wide array of Georgia artists. Organized by the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia and Athens’ Lyndon House Arts Center, the exhibition Cut and Paste: Works of Paper will travel the state of Georgia and features 11 Georgia artists, each of whom works in paper. From Steven Anderson’s “Tree Rings,” featuring torn, scratched and sanded paper drawn on with markers and pens, to Jerushia Graham’s complex and delicate cut paper pieces, Elizabeth Lide’s three-dimensional paper-pulp vessels, Teresa Bramlette Reeves’ life-size paper-doll dresses and Lucha Rodriguez’ cascading wall sculptures, all of them push the limits of this fragile medium.

Artists with work in Cut and Paste include: Steven L. Anderson, Jerushia Graham, Matt Haffner, Elizabeth Lide and Lucha Rodriguez of Atlanta; Betsy Cain, of Savannah; Imi Hwangbo and Samuel Stabler, of Athens; Hannah Israel, of Columbus; Teresa Bramlette Reeves of Kennesaw; and Kalina Wińska of Valdosta.

 Cut and Paste is part of “Highlighting Contemporary Art in Georgia,” a triennial series of traveling exhibitions that began with “Pushing the Press: Printmaking in the South” in 2016. Each exhibition is organized by the Georgia Museum of Art and the Lyndon House and made available at minimal cost to interested venues in metropolitan areas big and small across the state, in keeping with the University of Georgia’s statewide public outreach mission. Curator Didi Dunphy, who is the program supervisor at the Lyndon House, assembled both exhibitions, with assistance from the Georgia Museum of Art.

The exhibition opens at the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking on Monday, August 19 and runs through November 14. An opening reception will be held on Friday, September 6 from 6-8 pm with a talk by Didi Dunphy and artists Sam StablerKalina Winska, and Matt Haffner beginning at 7pm.

The council is a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
