Possibilities of Paper:
Select Works by Lucas Artists Fellows (2005-2015)

Tao Urban


Join us on Friday, February 27, at 6pm for the opening reception of our new exhibition Possibilities of Paper: Select Works by Lucas Artists Fellows (2005-2015)

Containing more than 40 works by 32 artists, this exhibition demonstrates the diverse and innovative ways that Lucas Artists Program (LAP) Fellows have used paper as a vehicle for creative expression. It will be on view in our Project Space Gallery through Sunday, May 31.

Selected artists have marshaled the creative possibilities of the medium to create abstract and figurative works—transformed by paint, ink, and mixed media; woven, made into collage, molded, and shaped into sculpture. All w
orks on view were either produced by artists during their stays at the LAP or influenced by their time in residence.

Possibilities of Paper is organized as part of a year-long anniversary celebration of Montalvo’s Residency Program. In 2015, we commemorate the 10-year jubilee of the Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency as well as the foundation of the third oldest artists’ residency in the US at Montalvo.

Click below to RSVP to the opening reception, which will include wine and presentations by some of the featured artists. $10 suggested donation at the door.
