The Weatherspoon acquired Eva Hesse’s No title No. 1, 1967, ink wash and graphite on paper with cotton string, from the 1967 Art on Paper exhibition. It was the first time Hesse’s work was acquired by a museum.

Art on Paper 2010 features regional, national and international artists who have produced significant works made on or of paper. Since 1965, the Weatherspoon’s Art on Paper exhibition has charted a history of art through the rubric of one-of-a-kind works on paper. Since its inception, the commitment of xpedx (formerly the Dillard Paper Company) and The Dillard Fund has allowed the Weatherspoon to acquire works from each and every Art on Paper exhibition, resulting in the formation and tremendous growth of the Dillard Collection, which today numbers close to 550 objects. Acquisitions have included work by some of art’s seminal practitioners, including Louise Bourgeois, Brice Marden, Joan Mitchell, Robert Smithson, Frank Stella and Eva Hesse.

Museum acquisitions for Art on Paper are made possible through the generous support of xpedx and the Dillard Fund. Support for the exhibition and catalogue is generously provided by the F.M. Kirby Foundation, Inc.

Curated by Xandra Eden, this year's exhibition includes 75 artists of regional and international significance.  The exhibition opens on Saturday, November 6 with a Curator’s Talk (6:30 pm) and Preview Party (7-9 pm) hosted by the Weatherspoon Art Museum Association. Call 336.334.5770 or email weatherspoon@uncg.edu for tickets. The 28-page Art on Paper 2010 catalogue, designed by Donna Wojek-Gibbs, includes selected images, an exhibition checklist, and curator’s statement.
