October 15 – December 4, 2011
Saturday, October 15, 3-5pm – Traywick Contemporary
Saturday, October 15, 5-8pm – Berkeley Art Center
The Paper Quilt Project is a collaborative project conceived of by Bay Area artist Lena Wolff in partnership with other artists and the Berkeley Art Center. For the project, Wolff and BAC are inviting multiple artist teams from around the nation and the UK to create collaborative paper quilts around the theme of interdependence and inter-connectivity. The nearly 30 artists involved include celebrated paper cut artist and children's book illustrator, Nikki McClure, artist and feminist icon Tammy Rae Carland and sculptor and social practice artist Allison Smith among others. To learn more and to see a complete list of artists involved, please visit here.A special addendum to this exhibition is an exhibition at Traywick Contemporary of work by exhibition curator Lena Wolff and several of the artists in the Berkeley Art Center exhibition. Entitled Visitors, this exhibition opening will take place just before the Berkeley Art Center opening and our membership and the general public are invited to attend both!
