Art on Paper 2019 opens to the general public on Sunday, February 3.

Art on Paper celebrates contemporary art in which the use of paper—either as surface or material—is a primary concern. Since 1965 the Weatherspoon’s Art on Paper exhibition has charted a history of contemporary art through outstanding works on paper. Art on Paper offers community members the exciting opportunity to purchase art, as all works in the show are for sale. Proceeds go directly to the artists and their galleries. The Dillard Fund and xpedx have provided long-standing support for the Weatherspoon to acquire selections from each Art on Paper exhibition for The Dillard Collection of Art on Paper, which now numbers over 570 examples. The collection includes noteworthy and established artists such as Robert Smithson, Howardena Pindell, Joseph Stella, Louise Bourgeois, and Lee Krasner. Contemporary artists added to the collection include Diana al-Hadid, Amy Cutler, Rosemarie Fiore, Toyin Ojih Odutola, and Saya Woolfalk. 

The exhibition’s Preview Party has been kindly supported in part by Lisa and Willie Bullock, and deftly led by Committee Chair Victoria Milstein, Katie Cone, Lewis Dancy, Stephanie Frazier, Ruth Heyd, Erin Jeffries, Julie Rendele, and Martha Thompson. Museum purchases from the exhibition for the Dillard Collection of Art on Paper are generously supported by the Dillard Fund. The catalogue is supported in part by a grant from the F.M. Kirby Foundation.

The exhibition is organized by Elaine D. Gustafson, Curator of Collections at the Weatherspoon, with support from special exhibition sponsors Lisa and Willie Bullock, and purchases supported by The Dillard Fund.
