Michael Shemchuk: Paper Trail

Share this


Exhibition Type:



Friday, 11 December 2020 to Sunday, 24 January 2021

Shemchuk’s large-scale mixed media paintings are created with layers of household paint and collaged paper that are abraded and ripped. His compositions dance with gestures, calligraphic marks and symbols. This exhibit includes his ‘surface tension’ works on paper, resulting from a unique process for painting with paper using pressure and water to print colors dissolved from different papers. Visitors will help create the resulting work by walking on top of a Plexiglas covered pathway of paper and water in the gallery from Dec. 11-13th.


On display December 11, 2020 - January 24, 2021.* Visitors must wear face masks and practice social distancing. This exhibit is sponsored by Tom Doyle & Kathy Joseph. 

*Closed on these dates: 12/25, 12/28, 12/31, 1/1, 1/4, 1/11, 1/18
