Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC, Offers Biennial Paper Exhibition

The Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC, is pleased to announce the selection of artists for the Art on Paper 2010 biennial exhibition, which opens to the public on Nov. 7, 2010 and remains on view through Feb. 6, 2011.

Xandra Eden, the Weatherspoon's Curator of Exhibitions, has invited seventy-five artists of regional and international significance to present unique works made on, or of, paper. "With this year's exhibition, the Weatherspoon continues to expand its international scope," comments Eden, "Art on Paper 2010 includes artists from across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, including new and recent work by Mequitta Ahuja, Diana Al-Hadid, Ky Anderson, Tom Burr, Dawn Clements, Gabriel de la Mora, Katie Holten, Eun Hyung Kim, William Powhida, Charlie Roberts, Dirk Stewen, Frank Selby, and many others." The full list of participating artists appears below.

Since 1965, the Weatherspoon's Art on Paper exhibition has charted a history of art through the rubric of one-of-a-kind works on paper. Now in its forty-first year, the steadfast commitment of xpdex (formerly the Dillard Paper Company) has allowed the Weatherspoon to acquire works from each and every Art on Paper exhibition, resulting in the formation and tremendous growth of the Dillard Collection of Art on Paper, which today numbers close to 550 objects. Acquisitions have included work by some of art's seminal practitioners, including Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse, Brice Marden, Joan Mitchell, Robert Smithson, and Frank Stella. Support for the exhibition and catalogue is generously provided by the F. M. Kirby Foundation, Inc.

The exhibition opens on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010, with a Curator's Talk by Xandra Eden at 6:30pm.

The 28-page Art on Paper 2010 catalogue, designed by Donna Wojek-Gibbs, includes selected images, an exhibition checklist, and curator's statement.
