From making the paper, to reusing the paper, these 3 exhibiting artists each explore this material in their own unique way.

Sue Fox is a mixed media artist working in collage exploring color through movement, texture and light. Escaping the fast-paced nature of our society, she embraces her inward moments with the simplicity and complexity of color, to understand that this everyday contrivance is powerful, and can be both loud and quiet, expansive and contracting.

Vida Sačić is an artist, designer and educator who creates work that blurs the distinctions between these areas. She explores the relationship of language to consciousness, identity, action and memory, as well as the role of language in defining the relationships of people to each other and the land they occupy.

Don Widmer is a Chicago-based book and paper artist specializing in pulp painting, a process that uses pigmented paper pulp as a painting medium. The softness of paper, its imprecise delineations and blurred lines, contrast with the severity of the steel structures he represents, creating a dreamlike quality.
