The O3 Gallery presents One Thousand Cranes: An Exhibition of Contemporary Paper Making featuring a selection of the UK’s leading artists currently working in the medium of paper. Examining the various methods and techniques, both traditional and innovative which characterise paper art, this exhibition explores the sculptural and graphic possibilities of paper whilst playfully reimagining the conventional uses of the medium as a marked surface such as in the printed word or cartography. Taking its title from the belief that the folding of one thousand origami cranes bestows eternal good luck on the folder, this exhibition offers and celebrates news perspectives on paper-making. The O3 Gallery is a high quality, contemporary art space that offers the public affordable, original artwork and provides selling opportunities for artists. The O3 Gallery endeavours to be seen as a centre for artistic activity within Oxford City. This is achieved through the delivery of varied and high quality exhibitions and events related to all aspects of the arts, created for the benefit of the local community and visitors to the area. The O3 Gallery proudly describes itself as the friendliest gallery in Oxford, welcoming art connoisseurs and beginners alike, and placing a strong emphasis on visitor information and interpretation of the artwork. The O3 space itself is of the highest quality and presented as an unusual circular gallery on two half levels. Fitted with state of the art lighting and hanging systems, flagstone floors and painted stone walls, the Gallery combines contemporary design with the unique heritage of Oxford Prison. Adjoining the Malmaison Hotel, the Gallery is only a few steps away from Oxford Preservation Trust’s visitor attractions at the Castle and Mound. www.o3gallery.co.uk
