Pulp , pa­per works at the Com­mu­nity Gallery

When it comes to art, pa­per is usu­ally a sur­face on which to draw, paint, print, and place other two-di­men­sional works, such as col­lage. But pa­per is also a sculp­tural medium. Used for book arts, origami, mixed-me­dia com­po­si­tions, or sim­ply as a three-di­men­sional form, this medium is the fo­cus of Pulp , a new ex­hibit at the City of Santa Fe Arts Com­mis­sion’s Com­mu­nity Gallery, in the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy St.).

“When vis­i­tors see the myr­iad pos­si­bil­i­ties fea­tured in this show, we hope they will gain a new­found un­der­stand­ing of the fragility and beauty of pa­per,” Rod Lam­ber, the gallery’s manager, said. The show in­cludes col­lage work by Gallery Zipp owner Charles Greeley, who cre­ates ex­u­ber­antly colored land­scapes from pat­terned Ja­panese pa­per; Joy Camp­bell, who takes old books and re­con­fig­ures them into in­ven­tive new forms; and Rick Phelps, who works in papier-mâché and mixed me­dia, craft­ing whim­si­cally fig­u­ra­tive constructions. Art by Deeda Hull, Will Karp, Julie Wag­ner, and oth­ers are also on view.

The 5 p.m. open­ing re­cep­tion for Pulp is on Fri­day, March 13; the show con­tin­ues through May 15. A sched­ule of re­lated events, in­clud­ing lec­tures on the meth­ods used by artists who work with pa­per as a medium, is avail­able at the gallery. For in­for­ma­tion call 505-955-6705.
