Running with Scissors: Beatrice Coron et al.

[Laser-cut ornaments by Beatrice Coron]

Shannon Morris, curator of the Georgia College Museum in Milledgeville, is once again drawing upon the school's strong literary roots for an upcoming book arts exhibition, Apocryphal, Traditional et al. One of the included artists, Beatrice Coron, is well known for her contemporary paper cutwork, and I noticed that she currently has for sale a set of a dozen laser-cut archival cardboard ornaments. Check them out here.

Back in 2007, Hollyhock had a stunning 19th-century piece created with colorful cut-paper and tinsel. This past post offers links to related artists, past and present, such as Emma van Leest, Kara Walker and Mary Delany.

On behalf of Beatrice as well as Georgia College, I thank you for this beautiful post. I am always intrigued by the work of Kara Walker as well.
