The local art scene in Baton Rouge is getting noticeably more exciting!
Elevator Projects is an art collective that holds “pop-up” experimental art exhibitions. It was started by a group of LSU graduate art students who saw a need for more open platforms for art in the community.
More about Elevator Projects in this article, and Facebook here. The most recent exhibition is Fluxswitch, in which I installed collaborative paper work in. Keep scrolling down for photos from the opening night.
As promised, here are photos of the art installations shown in Uncharted Territories: A Printscape, which was part of this past SGC International Printmaking Conference held in New Orleans, Louisiana. This exhibition features emerging artists in South Louisiana, working in printmaking, handmade paper art, fiber art, video, sculpture and more. Enjoy!
Every year the Yahoo Papermaking Group holds a Swatch Swap, which is an international exchange of handmade paper samples with recipes of how each unique paper was made.
