Artist Lynn Gall, current exhibitor in the Westminster College Art Gallery, will host a Paste Paper workshop for invited participants Saturday, March 25, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Patterson Hall room 319.
"The public is invited to stop by and watch children and adults try their hand at this age-old process," said Peggy Cox, professor of art at Westminster College. "Paste Paper is a method of making decorative papers that can be used in other craft and fine art projects, such as book covers, stationary, wrapping papers, collages, and boxes. The paper is coated with a premixed blend of pastes and acrylic paints, applied to a paper surface, and then removed with various tools to create simple to very complex designs."
"My work is about paper," writes Gall in her artist's statement. "From a very early age, I was surrounded with paper collectibles of all kinds, since my mother was an antique dealer specializing in ephemera. It just seemed perfectly natural to me to turn to these materials when I decided to make art. Underlying all my work, is the universal theme of time and its passing – sometimes fleeting, sometimes epochal, but always enigmatic and relentless."
Gall, a professional artists who resides in Hartford, Conn., earned undergraduate and master's degrees in anthropology and organizational behavior. She conducts a variety of workshops across the country. Her exhibit titled, "Collective Memory," is influenced by Floridan colors, patterns, and textures.
