Paper on Display: Exhibit at Nicolet

Jan 16, 2014

A gallery exhibition at Nicolet College closes Friday. It features paper and book arts made by people involved with the Mill, an arts nonprofit based in Rhinelander. 

Executive Director Daniel Goscha says the show is a kind of retrospective of the nonprofit’s first year. 

“It is a very diverse show.  There’s examples of book arts, of printmaking, of letterpress and cyanotype.  So it really is a broad show in terms of featuring paper making and book arts and all of the many facets that can take.” 

There are also some pieces that look at the process of paper making, and work by renowned book artist Marilyn Sward.  Goscha says Sward was a regular summer resident in the Northwoods, and the Mill wants to honor her legacy. 

“So we’re really lucky – her family loaned us some of her works, which is not exhibited very often.  So we were very fortunate to have a number of Marilyn’s pieces in the show as well.” 

The closing reception Friday also features a haiku reading by local poet Brent Goodman at 6 pm.
