Katagami Sculpture

An upcoming exhibition at the Longmont Museum, Longmont, Colorado sounds very intriguing! Combining stencil making and sculpture, Jennifer Falck Linssen makes paper sculptures from intricately carved stencils that she carves by hand. Her work is described as a marriage of traditional basket forms and pictorial katagami-style paper stencils.

Jennifer Falck Linssen: Beyond Katagami opens at the Longmont Museum on January 24 and runs through March 22. Linssen will present a lecture, "Under the Knife: Carved Paper Sculpture," on Wednesday, January 28 at 7 pm. Cost is $5. Members of Friends of the Longmont Museum are admitted free.
