Cut Up Cut Out at Bellevue Art Museum

I’m back from a short trip to Seattle to visit friends and see art. A highlight of gallery hopping from the past few days was to see an incredible show of cut paper art at the Bellevue Art Museum, titled Cut Up Cut Out. All of the best known artists working with cut paper are in this traveling show put together by Bedford Gallery in California. I’d been dying to see it since I first learned it would be showing in Bellevue.

It is a fantastic show featuring a wide variety of artists, and beautifully showcases the art of paper cutting. I really wish my own work had been included in this exhibition, but I am not well know enough. I’ve included photos here of sixteen of the many pieces from the show.
