Exhibit features origami, opens ThursdayApril 29, 2014
From local sources
JASPER — The Krempp Gallery at the Jasper Arts Center will present “Beauti-fold: Origami Collage Landscapes” by artist Linda Stephen of Lincoln, Neb., in May.
Stephen is a self-taught paper artist who grew up in Michigan and studied at the Japan Center for Michigan Universities. Her origami landscapes are part of public and private collections across the U.S. and Japan.
Fluent in Japanese and passionate about Japanese paper, Linda lived in castle towns in Shiga (Michigan’s sister state in Japan) for seven years studying Japanese art and language and working as a teacher and translator.
Stephen’s origami bas-relief landscapes are an extension of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. Her art incorporates luscious Japanese Yuzen pattern papers, other handmade papers and unique, origami paper sculptures that she invents. The origami landscapes celebrate both the festive and the quiet moments in our lives.
The gallery will host a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday featuring a gallery talk by Stephen, music by Strings Inc., refreshments and a cash wine bar.
The Krempp Gallery, located in the Jasper Arts Center adjacent to the Vincennes University Jasper Campus, is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, until 7 p.m. Thursdays and from noon to 3 p.m. Sundays. School groups, clubs and students are welcome. Admission is free.
For more information, call the arts center at 482-3070.
