Cut to perfection

Illinois State Museum, Prairie Art Alliance, Springfield Art Association, University of Illinois at Springfield and Robert Morris College have bound together to present a citywide exhibition, Partners on Paper, through the month of October.

UIS Visual Arts Gallery offers the paper work of Oregon artist Helen Hiebert, featuring The Mother Tree, a life-size handmade paper dress with crocheted threads extending from its base as roots. Visitors can add their own words to the exhibit on notepads.

An opening reception is Oct. 21 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at which time all organizations will host receptions simultaneously so patrons can gallery hop to see all the paper art at each venue.

The exhibit was featured in an October 6, 2011, article in the Illinois Times.
