I am unilaterally declaring February 11th to be an international holiday. PaperCut's day. Now, doesn't that sound like the kind of holiday you want to jump right into? PaperCuts for everyone! Give 'em to your sweetheart, your family, your kids!
First up, it's PaperCuts for New Yorkers. myplasticheartnyc | gallery is presenting the 3rd annual New Moon: Interpretations of the Chinese Zodiac group exhibit. This year 24 artists will try their hand at re-imagining the 12 zodiac animals of the Chinese lunar calendar. There will be a wide range of art available including paintings, digital, as well as sculptural pieces.
And PaperCuts. Let's not forget the PaperCuts. New Moon is curated by the inestimable John Wong, who it is always a pleasure to work with. And just take a look at this list of artists! It's always a thrill to have my work showing alongside such unique and diverse talent. I've had a look at some of the preview images, and they are beautiful. Heck, just look at Leontine Greenberg's rabbit on the postcard. Exquisite. Sadly, I can't make the trip to NY for the opening, but I will be there in spirit.
I hope that tons of you can come out to support the art and our new holiday. I've sent two pieces to be in the show, both of which I'm very proud of. For a preview, cast your eyes upwards to the title banner.
That takes care of the East Coast. West Coasters, your PaperCuts are coming real soon!
