Nikki McClure: Cutting Her Own Path

11.13.12 - 2.3.13 | Nikki McClure: Cutting Her Own Path

Nikki McClure works with daily life as her subject, black paper as her medium and an X-ACTO blade as her tool. Born in Kirkland, Washington, the artist's intricate papercuts form the foundation of a self-made career that now spans published calendars, books, t-shirts, posters and more. Made with simple tools and telling everyday stories, McClure's images show real people of today engaged in activities that have been occurring for thousands of years: picking berries, eating meals together and swimming in a river. The first museum exhibition to focus on her sixteen-year career, Nikki McClure: Cutting Her Own Path, 1996 - 2012 reveals how one artist uses a simple craft and graphic language to show how to be a maker and live a self-sustained life. http://www.nikkimcclure.com/ Tuesday - Sunday: 11am - 5pm Free First Friday: 11am - 8pm 510 Bellevue Way NE Bellevue, WA 98004  Read more...
