The artists featured in Paper Translations transform the seemingly mundane material of paper by reinterpreting it into complex works of contemporary art through folding, staining, painting, cutting, casting, felting, tearing, sewing, and weaving, merging cultural tradition and personal memory to reintroduce us to paper in ways we have never seen before. View gallery open hours.
