When: July 2-30 2016

Opening on Saturday, July 2, the Walker Contemporary in Waitsfield presents “Time Honored,” a solo exhibition of intricate hand-carved paper-works by the Buffalo-based artist. “I have great respect for paper,” says White. “Paper is everywhere and it has been telling stories for centuries.” Her scenes and portraits merge feminine portraits with flora and fauna, evoking myth and alluding to what she dubs “the idea of ancestral memory.” The delicacy of the works is astounding, but, according to White, so is the material’s sturdiness: “When I cut, the thin, membranous material reveals its strength to me. No matter how small my cuts, the paper holds. There is a certain comfort in that.”
