Curated by Richard Roth

Artists: Siemon Allen, Royce Howes, Richard Roth

The newspaper has been a source for artists at least since Picasso and Braque adhered scraps of newsprint to their paintings. The three artists in this exhibition approach the newspaper from a variety of directions: socio-political critique, poetic exploration of image, and as source material for curating micro-exhibitions. These artists rescue the delicate pages of aging newsprint from oblivion and find meaning in the mundane.
