Land Studies: paper art by May Babcock

Land Studies: New Work by May Babcock

Exhibitions, News, Projects

I’m happy to announce my latest show, Land Studies, a solo exhibition of  my new papermaking work at the AS220 Project Space Gallery in Providence. It’s my first Rhode Island art show! Take a look at my new pulp paintings and  sculptural papermaking installations based on sites around Rhode Island and coastal New England.

Sculptural Papermaking Workshop at AS220

General, How-To, Inspiration, Workshops

After a run of some popular basic hand papermaking classes at the AS220 Print Shop, a sculptural papermaking class seemed to make sense. Pulp painting is fantastic, but so is taking advantage of the artistic potential of paper to be three-dimensional. Working with paper pulp or freshly formed, wet sheets opens up a world of sculptural techniques that utilize how wet paper sheets dry and the remarkable memory that paper fibers have. Lindsey Beal and I had a great time showing a range of sculptural techniques in this debut class. Check out some photos from the workshop!

Elevator Projects: Fluxswitch

Exhibitions

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.
