OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday October 25, 6 – 8pm
Talks from artists at 6:30 p.m.
At its simplest, paper is an ordinary, everyday item that is a part of most of our lives. Yet when it is found in the hands of an artist and is purposefully manipulated in some fashion, it can become a complex, three-dimensional artwork that speaks of form, function, our culture, our land, and our lives. More than 40 printmakers, book artists, sculptors, paper folders and painters delve into cutting, forming, folding, or pressing paper to create small to monumental works of art.
Look for the panels “Pas de Deux” by Linda Stephen, origami collage from Japanese papers of a pair of Sandhill cranes dancing on a late winter field.

What: ARTS IN THE PLAZA: SUPPORTING A COMMUNITY OF ART. This family friendly, community event will bring to life all the wonders of the arts community. There will be activities and demonstrations for everyone to enjoy. Some arts featured will be Culinary, Theatrical, Musical, Visual, Martial Arts and the Art in Motion.
Also, visitors can see the final installment of the 2013 Community Supported Art Harvest and meet the artists. Based on the same model as community supported agriculture, in this first year of Community Supported Art in Lincoln, 50 shares of “art stock” were sold to people who have been receiving their “harvest” of art throughout the summer. Nine local artists (including Linda) were selected to each create 50 pieces of unique art for these shareholders. A 10th piece of art was created by pottery classes of North Star High School, giving each shareholder a total of 10 original works. The first two deliveries were held during Jazz in June and the Old Cheney Road Farmers Market. All are welcome to the free event.
