Paper art work to show in upcoming Tempe Center for the Arts biennial

July 30th, 2008 | 3 Comments

I am pleased and proud to announce that my recent paper construction, Ekeliges Zeug! (pronounced ek-el-EE-ges ZOIG), will be among the works of 26 Arizona artists on display in TCA Biennial: Paper this autumn at the Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA).

TCA Biennial: Paper opens Saturday, September 6 in the main gallery of the Tempe Center for the Arts. The show will run through January 10, 2009.

The opening night of TCA Biennial: Paper falls on the one-year anniversary of the opening of the TCA. As a matter of tradition, paper is given as a gift to celebrate first anniversaries. Consequently, the city of Tempe built the show around works on paper, art made of paper, and art inspired by paper.

Eighty-five Arizona artists applied to the show. Judges were impressed by the “high level of craftsmanship and innovativeness” found in works submitted, according to the museum.

TCA Biennial: Paper will be my fourth biennial exhibition in Arizona. Others include the 2003, 2005 and 2007 editions of the Arizona Biennial, held at the Tucson Museum of Art.
