October 22, 2014 § Leave a comment



At the Duxbury Art Complex in Duxbury, MA there’s only a short period of time before the ‘Hidden Worlds‘ exhibit by 19 on Paper  comes to and end on November 9th, 2014.  This group from Rhode Island was organized in 1986 and still has a robust collective of artists that focuses on art made on paper.   The above pieces are entitled ‘Spill’ by Kristin Street are constructed with steel pins, poplar and paper that creates a fascinating three dimensional quality which defies gravity.

Joan Hausrath is one of the ringleaders for the 19 on Paper collaborative who recently gave a talk on the participating artists’ interpretations of their individual pieces and how they relate to the concept of Hidden Worlds.  Joan’s collagraphs are a personal favorite with their textural characteristics and ties with primitive art that tie perfectly with this printmaking medium.
