At its simplest, paper is an ordinary, everyday item that is a part of most of our lives. Yet when it is found in the hands of an artist and is purposefully
manipulated in some fashion, it can become a complex, three-dimensional artwork that speaks of form, function, our culture, our land, and our lives. Printmakers, book artists, sculptors, and painters delve into cutting, forming, folding, or pressing paper to create small to monumental works of art.
