PAPER 2019

April 6 – May 16, 2019


I was honored to be invited to be the juror of this exhibition at the Silvermine Arts Center and to be associated with such an outstanding organization. The opportunity to see the diverse range of thoughts, styles, forms, and materials represented in submissions—which numbered 402 artists and which were drawn from around the country—was inspiring, as was the consistent excellence visible within the various approaches and techniques the artists chose to employ. Printmaking, photography, drawing, sculpture, collage, and assemblage were all represented in the submissions, thus testifying to the vitality of art made with paper and the infinite possibilities the material allows. As a juror, I both had the enviable task of seeing the full range of submissions and the difficult job of making hard choices from this group in order to curate an exhibition that I felt would best reflect the diversity and strength of contemporary works on paper drawn from the works submitted. In the end, I chose 88 works by 67 artists. My goal was to show a variety of works that reflect different concerns, methods, aesthetics, styles, processes, intentions, and possibilities, yet which are all fundamentally connected to paper. For some of the artists in the exhibition, paper may be essential to their practice and a material they have engaged consistently in their work for some time; for others, however, their primary association may be with other methods, such as sculpture, installations, painting, or even film, thus allowing for different frames of reference when they engage paper. This diversity is reflected in the works themselves; both formally and intellectually, nothing binds these artists together other than their deep interest in experimentation and the excellence of the work they have made with paper. This show is but a brief survey of just some of contemporary works made in paper drawn from the outstanding works submitted; we are keenly aware that it is possible to imagine many iterations of such a display, all vital and important, which speaks to the deep pool of talented artists working today in paper. In selecting the awards, I wanted to represent the possibilities for working with paper. I therefore chose an artist who made drawings, one who made photographs, one who made prints, and one who made large-scale sculptures. I hope you enjoy this exhibition.

Silvermine Arts Center is a nearly century-old organization dedicated to excellence in art and art education that inspires creativity and builds community. Located on five bucolic acres, Silvermine encompasses a School of Art with over 4,000 annual enrollments; an Outreach Education Program serving 1,000 under-resourced students annually; a Guild of over 300 professional artists; an outdoor Sculpture Walk; a permanent print collection; and five free, public galleries exhibiting contemporary art. Silvermine has been a place for artists to gather since 1906 when visionary sculptor Solon Borglum moved to the area and held annual exhibitions in his studio and weekly artist-critiques called the Knockers Club. In 1922 The Silvermine Guild of Artists was incorporated as a not-for-profit to provide a permanent and supportive community of artists. Guild members represent artists that have a high level of accomplishment and are selected through a jurying process. Our Galleries have exhibited and involved art luminaries such as Joseph Albers, Gabor Peterdi, Milton Avery, Elaine deKooning, Clement Greenberg, Louise Nevelson, Larry Rivers, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Faith Ringold, James Rosenquist, Chuck Close, Philip Johnson, and many others. The Galleries continue to expand on our heritage by presenting visually compelling exhibitions of art by emerging and internationally recognized artists, accompanied by programs that encourage appreciation of art and its role in society. Our layered, approach includes programs tailored to make our exhibitions meaningful, accessible, and enjoyable for diverse audiences of every age and background. Many of our landmark exhibitions are juried by distinguished guest curators. All of our exhibitions offer opportunities for visitors to connect with art and each other through an exploration of ideas. What attracts artists, students, and visitors to Silvermine is the pivotal role it plays as an inclusive gathering place that deepens understanding through the arts. Silvermine is grateful for the generosity of its supporters. Gifts ensure excellence now and for generations to come.
