The Carnegie Arts Center is excited to present Cut Up/Cut Out, an exhibition of international artists who explore the captivating methods of decorative piercing and cutting, using a wide range of media from paper and plastic to metal and rubber. The transformative nature of cutting into and through a surface provides endless possibilities for converting the material from opaque to transparent, from flat to sculptural, from rigid to delicate, and from ordinary to exquisite. With roots dating back to ancient China, the art of paper cutting has developed from a decorative folk craft – primarily seen as women’s work – to a challenging adventure for contemporary artists. The process and precision required for this method of art-making is laborious and technically demanding, but the results are astonishing!



Cut Up/Cut Out was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, The Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA.
