Pulped Under Pressure
co-curated by Reni Gower and Melissa Hilliard Potter
With traditional hand papermaking at its core, Pulped Under Pressure (first exhibition at the Tidewater Community College Visual Arts Center January 16 - March 3, 2016) underscores important contemporary issues steeped in history and craft. Enticed through touch, these works encourage a contemplative slowing down even as they urge acknowledgement of some of the most pressing issues (environmental crisis to global marginalization) facing civilization today.
The show has traveled to the Wriston Art Center at Lawrence University, and Mary Washington University among others through 2019/20.
