The Weatherspoon Art Museum proudly presents the Art on Paper 2017: 44th Exhibition. Since 1965, this dynamic survey has uniquely taken the pulse of contemporary art by showcasing artworks made on or with paper. This year’s

installation features compelling new work by twenty-five artists from across the country. From exquisitely rendered ink drawings and densely layered collages to embroidered pages and “plucked” paper walls, each artist has taken full advantage of paper’s astonishing possibilities as both surface and structure. In their hands the medium’s flexibility and facility has been used to explore a breadth of themes—from family relationships to geography, science fiction to ancient history, the natural world to digital technology. Visitors are sure to encounter works that both resonate with personal experiences and inspire new ways of thinking.
