Featured Artists

Peace Paper Project

October 1–5, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Czurles-Nelson Gallery, Upton Hall

Artist Talk: Thursday, October 4, 12:15-1:30 p.m., Upton Hall Lobby

Peace Paper Project is an international organization of hand papermakers, art therapists, fine artists, and social activists. Through community collaborations, Peace Paper workshops are offered to help and advocate for healing populations. Since its inception, Peace Paper has established over 40 studios across the globe, including in Australia, India, Iran, Turkey, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, United Kingdom, and as far west in the U.S. as Hawaii.

Peace Paper Project facilitators Drew Matott and Jana Schumacher will be at using a bike-operated Hollander beater to engage Buffalo State students in an ongoing interactive papermaking demonstration, making paper from refugee clothing, military uniforms, underwear, politician suits, horse manure, and other pulps gathered from past international workshops.

Community members are invited to take part in the transformative process of papermaking during the scheduled activities. Participants will have the opportunity to make paper from their own clothing to contribute to the exhibit and ongoing activities.

Dr. Margaret E. Bacon Student Gallery, Upton Hall 

Artist Talk: Tuesday, October 2, 12:15-1:30 p.m., Upton Hall 230

In his newest exhibition, Claude: A Reflection, textile artist John Latona presents a series of work inspired by his experiences in Rwanda, Africa. Latona uses traditional weaving and silkscreening techniques as a means to process a need for self discovery initiated by his travels.

You are invited to participate with Latona in his reflection by printing your very own Claude t-shirt or poster with a small cost during the opening reception and during the artist talk.

All proceeds will be donated to Urukundo Village, a school in Rwanda.
