The Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center usually hosts some awesome exhibits. I’ve been to quite a few over the years, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen something as mesmerizing as Cut Up/Cut Out, which is on display now through March 5.
The exhibit features 56 contemporary artists from around the world whose artwork is made from cutting and piercing paper and other materials. The detail in some of the pieces is truly astonishing, as is the creativity in cutting and pasting certain parts of texts together to make something entirely different.
You can see a slideshow of some photos below, but it really won’t do the artwork justice. It’s one of those displays that must be seen to be believed. I’d highly recommend going to check it out when you have an hour free in the next month or so! Pro tip: If you go on the first Tuesday of February or March, you can get in free (but donations are always encouraged).
