August 5 - August 25, 2016--Paper Transformed II is the subject and the art of eight Northwest artists to be presented at the Vashon Center for the Arts on Vashon Island,WA. This is the second exhibition of the work of “Paper Eight”, Western Washington artists who transform machine and handmade paper into paper sculpture, artist books, joomchi, paper weaving, paper in space, and any other paper imaginings. The papers used in the works include watercolor, Japanese, handmade Asian and Western, and dressmaking pattern paper. To paraphrase philosopher and communication theorist Marshall McLuhan “the paper is the medium and the message” for our art. Participating artists are: Mary Ashton, Dona Anderson, Danielle Bodine, Zia Gipson, Lois James, Dorothy McGuinness, Jean-Marie Tarascio, and Sande Wascher-James.
