Works on paper cover a diverse range of artworks created on paper as a medium with the use of oil, pastels, ink, acrylics, charcoal, pencils, and more. Paper art can take different forms and shapes and be presented in a myriad of creative ways. If you happen to be in Spring, TX, this fall, take your time to visit the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts. With the opening of its two new exhibitions, it will offer visitors a unique opportunity to explore the amazing world of art on paper.

Pulped Under Pressure, which will be held in the Main Gallery of the Museum, is based on traditional hand papermaking techniques. Featuring works by seven artists, it will present a wide variety of paper-based art ranging from installation art made with the use of recycled materials to papercutting to printmaking. The main idea of this exhibition is to encourage viewers to think about global marginalization, environmental crisis, and some other pressing issues facing our world today.
