Take scissors to a piece of folded paper and, like magic, it unfolds into a snowflake. The new exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum starts with the simple technique behind this elementary
schoolcraft, which actually dates back to sixth-century China, and elevates it. Cut Up/Cut Out features 51 international artists who cut (or slice, or pierce) not just paper but plastic, metal, even rubber, and paint with negative space to breathtaking effect.
Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 11:00am to 5:00pm between June 30 and October 22
