6X8 Exhibition Opening!

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Tonight’s the night!

Come join us in celebrating the work of over 90 artists who rose to the 6X8 challenge.  These artists used a vast variety of materials such as… ink, oil transfer, collage, graphite, earth materials, watercolour and tape, with one unifying element, a piece of Japanese handmade kozo paper called Etchu Hagaki. The result is inspiring!

Opening reception and award presentation for Best in Show, tonight Wednesday, October 10th from 7pm until 9pm at The Paper Place – 887 Queen Street West.

The show will remain on display until Wednesday, October 31st. Come check it out!

The Paper Place’s 3rd Annual 6X8 call for submissions and art exhibition is back!

The 6X8 event is an opportunity for Toronto artists to try their craft upon a piece of handmade Japanese kozo card and inevitably fall in love with it! It is a challenge to produce a piece of original artwork that brings out the inherent beauty of the washi paper provided. Prizes will be awarded to Best in Show and Runner-up, judged by The Paper Place staff and local artists (TBA). Artists may make work in any medium with any theme, the only stipulation is that the work use the 6X8 Etchu Hagaki.

You may register at The Paper Place, in person up until September 30th. Completed works must be returned by October 1st to be included in the exhibition.

The 6X8 works will be on display at The Paper Place from October 10th until October 30th. Join us for an opening reception Wednesday, October 10th from 7-9pm.
