Matisse and the Contemporary Paper Artists
Updated: Jul 12, 2022
This summer, a cohort of eighteen members of the PAC are taking part in an exhibition of paper art at the Rheged Gallery in Penrith. The exhibition includes Matisse: Drawing with Scissors, his late works 1950-1954, a Hayward Gallery Touring Exhibition, which features 35 lithographic prints of the famous cut-outs produced by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) in the last four years of his life. The wider Gallery features 200 artworks by 42 leading British Paper Artists including animation, origami, fashion, collage, 3-D sculpture and paper cuts.
The exhibition has been a wonderful opportunity for so many members to show their work in the same space.
The exhibition runs until 4th September and tickets can be booked via the Rheged website.
