Cutting Across Cultures: The Art of Papercutting
Release Date: February 02, 2007

Cutting Across Cultures: The Art of Papercutting, Then and Now

January 7-February 17 at the Rye Arts Center

 

Over 500 Sound Shore students to visit exhibit and participate in workshops

The Rye Arts Center is a very exciting place these days especially if you are a student ages 4-13.  A variety of school groups from the Sound Shore region have experienced some engaging workshops since the show opened on January 7th. The groups arrive and are given a docented gallery tour from one of the exhibit curators and then participate in a workshop with one of the artists that are also exhibiting work in the show. Hou Tien Cheng, a folk artist living in New Jersey, entertained the children by creating animals and silhouette figures using one piece of paper and his bonsai scissors. Beatrice Coron, a world renown artist based in Manhattan, has guided the children with both their fingers and scissors in creating little pop-up cards. Rick Jones will be returning to do his magic with several groups of children as well as Aurelia Fernandez on February 13th. The “Cutting Across Cultures; The Art of Paper Cutting, Then and Now” is a fascinating family experience and will be on view until February 17th. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 10-5pm. Saturday 10-4pm.
