Cut Up/Cut Out Opening Reception
Friday, October 18
Art Museum and Museum Education Center
The reception is free and open to the public.
Cut Up/Cut Out celebrates the tradition, innovation, and surprising beauty of decorative piercing and cutting as practiced by contemporary artists today. The transformative nature of cutting into and through a surface provides endless possibilities for converting a 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. Representing a diversity of styles and techniques, this exhibition brings together original works that span a variety of media – from paper and plastic to metal and rubber – by more than 50 artists from around the globe.
Cut Up/Cut Out was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA.
Sponsored by Laurie Erickson and E. Gordon Gee.
Additional support provided by the Friends of the Art Museum, William and Linda Hagerty, and the Joyce Ice Fund for Exhibitions and Acquisitions.
