Paper Jam! Show Opening This Friday!

My House Gallery invites you to attended its opening of PAPER JAM on Friday, September 19th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

The 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper has become a fixture in our
contemporary culture. This standard image confronts us every day.Containing advertisement, files, faxes, business contracts, photocopies, and a myriad of information, we take in the information, oftenover looking the spatial context within which it is contained. What ifour standard paper size was drastically different? What if it was halfof or doubled in size? How would this change our perception andunderstanding of information? Paper Jam puts the 8 1/2 by 11 piece ofpaper under the hand of the artist to allow them to expand or contracttheir artistic understanding of the parameters of space presented.
