Nine artists explore the versatile medium of paper in Cut & Torn: Paperscapes, now on display at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center.
Four of the nine have CCAD connections: Julie Abijanac (associate professor and 1992 Fine Arts alumna), Susan Li O’Connor (adjunct instructor and Fine Arts alumna 1996), Fine Arts alumnus Michael Litzau (CCAD 2004), and Leah Wong, advisor to the president at CCAD.
Following their individual avenues of inspiration and expression, the artists examine the remarkably diverse uses of paper in a range of art forms. They sculpt, cut, mold, and transform paper to share personal and universal concepts and emotions ranging from whimsy to vulnerability.
The exhibition runs through Dec. 28 at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center, 139 W. Main St., Columbus, OH, 43215. Gallery hours are Monday 1–4 p.m. and 7–10 p.m., Tuesday–Thursday 9 a.m.–4 p.m. and 7–10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 9 a.m.–4 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sunday.
Abijanac is from Columbus, OH, and attended Columbus Alternative School; O’Connor was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and attended Westerville North High School; Litzau is from Milwaukee, WI, and attended Pius XI High School; and Wong is from Columbus, OH.
