  1. Diverse group of artists all working with different forms of paper. Enjoyed Shane’s pastels tonight, as well as the unusual 3D paperwork by Philip Carey (check out his exquisitely done notecards), and Val Bembenek’s paper mache vases and bowls (who knew you could make beautiful objects from the yellow pages?). Show runs till March 6, so you have time to see all.
