Paper Art at the Pearl Fincher Museum: Two Exhibits to Discover

Paper is called one of the most flexible art mediums for good reason. While a sheet of paper is no more than a knick-knack in the hands of an ordinary person, it can transform into a work of art in the hands of a master. If you want to see the potential of paper, you should visit two upcoming art exhibitions at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts in Spring, Texas. “Pulped Under Pressure: The Art of Handmade Paper” and ​“The Art of Paper” will both be devoted to the amazing paper art. The launch of the exhibitions is planned for September 10, 2021.

Since its opening in 2008, the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts has been diligently pursuing the mission to provide unlimited and direct access to original art and art education. The upcoming art exhibitions are yet one more way to allow all interested in fine art to hold their breath and enjoy quality paper art in full.

The first exhibition, “Pulped Under Pressure: The Art of Handmade Paper,” will take place in the Main Gallery of the Pearl Fincher Museum. The show will feature paper art by Marilyn Propp, Jillian Bruschera, Maggie Puckett, Trisha Oralie Martin, Reni Gower, Julia Goodman, and Melissa Potter. All seven artists have managed to transform the seemingly simple material into amazing works of art using a variety of different techniques. The results will impress you.

“The Art of Paper,” in its turn, will feature works by five talented artists, all presented in the Cole Gallery. Ellen Frances Tuchman, Roberto Benavidez, Nancy Winn, Eric Standley, and Matthew Shlian will show you the power of paper by turning ordinary sheets into stunning pieces of fine art.

Don’t miss a member-only event devoted to the opening of the exhibitions on Friday, September 10. To become a member and find out more information about the art shows, visit the official website of the Pearl Fincher Museum.
