Paper-Cut Project
October 3 – November 15

Experience paper as an art form: the transformation of the material and its potential as a raw medium through two bodies of work.

The dramatic, detailed silhouettes of Amy Flurry and Nikki Nye are inspired by the natural world and the wildlife surrounding Thomasville, GA. Lisa Co explores the function of text and language through complex, overlapping imagery.

Amy Flurry and Nikki Nye of Paper-Cut Project transform simple sheets of paper into one-of-a-kind sculptures that make the jump from accessory to art object, with the object itself being both intense and beautiful. This design duo, co-founded in 2009, forged a unique linkage of fine art and fashion that has garnered commissions by several of the world’s top fashion houses and galleries including, Hermès, Cartier, Kate Spade, Christies and Valentino. From the runway to site-specific installations and editorial, the paper sculptures work across many disciplines. Amy Flurry lives in Athens, Georgia and Nikki Nye is based in Chicago.

Lisa Co holds an interdisciplinary practice that includes printmaking, bookmaking, installation and writing. Her process speaks to the insufficiency of language as a tool to express, feelings of frustration, false progress, and broken wholes. Lisa Co is a professor of art at FSU and is based in Tallahassee, FL.

Paper & Pencil
October 4 – November 20

If art is an expression of oneself through media, then Paper and Pencil is the simplest form of expression. In this exhibit, Thomas County Schools student-artists, grades PreK through 8th, explore how to express themselves through various art forms. From drawing and painting to sculpture and printmaking, the creation of this art developed students’ self-awareness, personal abilities and talents. In the process, students studied color theory, the cultural and historical aspects of art, and built their visual vocabulary. While diverse in its forms, from the planning and the plotting to the final production, the work in this exhibit all began with Paper and Pencil.
