Come see the new exhibit at the Guild of American Papercutters National Museum, Somerset, PA, featuring artists working in papercutting traditions of many kinds.
The Guild of American Papercutters through the synchronistic act of utilizing paper to create handmade papercut art celebrates books to both showcase visual art and to teach paper art styles.
“Carefully chosen words paint visuals upon a page for the theater of the mind. This has often inspired other, more visually oriented artists to create tangible objects based on these mental images. Not only can this create a more fully realized piece of art, it also allows these artists to produce content based on their own interpretations.” ~ Ginger Voight
“All parts of a book are art, from writing, typesetting, and bookbinding to cover design and the act of reading a book. Books are made possible due to numerous interconnected art forms, so the final product can also be considered art.” ~ John Zander
All exhibits are free and open to the public. Donations are accepted and always appreciated.
