Evoluction Paper College by Lou Plummer through October 31

Carolina Creations Fine Art and Contemporary Craft Gallery at 317 Pollock St in Downtown New Bern, announces their featured artist for September and October, Lou Plummer. 

The opening reception for her show, titled ‘Evolution’, will take place during ArtWalk on Friday, September 13 from 5 to 8 pm where you will get a chance to meet the artist.

 Lou creates collage from papers hand made by her and others.  Before working with paper Lou spent many years as a professional photographer but always longed to work with her hands. After attending a class at the John C Campbell School in Brasstown she found her calling.  Claudia Lee has been her teacher and mentor ever since.

The paper Lou uses is created by first beating down fiber into pulp.   The pulp can be used in its natural state or dyes added for color.  The pulp is then drained through a screen (mould) and laid down.  Water is removed by pressing and drying to make paper.

Lou has chosen to title her show ‘Evolution’ to show the progression from her first experiments with paper to her current expression through collage.

ArtWalk is held throughout Downtown New Bern every other month starting in January.  The last ArtWalk of the year will be held November 8th with a Christmas Show celebrating Family and featuring Carolina Creations gallery artists.
