Jean Murphy is exhibiting CUT and ALTERED PAPER ART


Jean Murphy is exhibiting CUT and ALTERED PAPER ART at Papa Gino’s, 645 Chandler St., in Tatnuck Square, Worcester during the months of June and July.

A Greet The Artist Reception will be held ON FRIDAY JUNE 27th, 3 to 5pm. All are welcome.

CUT PAPER technique uses cut pieces of paper to create an image on a sturdy surface. This is scanned and printed and the print becomes the art which may be developed with more cut paper.

ALTERED PAPER ART is original art painted on magazine pages where the ink on the pages is dissolved by a solvent and forms a background for the painted image. Imagination suggests the direction of the image.

Papa Gino’s is open daily from 11 am to 10 pm.
