|Facebook etching on handmade paper|
If you are planning a trip out east to the Hamptons, here are two galleries that you may want to drop in with your kids.
In Sag Harbor at the Delaney Cooke Gallery at Haven's House Art Space, Beth Giles' exhibit: Paper, Paper is up through June 30th. Handmade paper works that are mostly in spiral shapes. Some of the large spirals are 36 inch, round, 3-D books. Some books are mounted on the walls and some are on standing bases. To view the pieces you must turn the thick but delicate pages. Ms. Giles makes the paper from cotton, abaca linen, and flax fibers. In addition to the different pigmentations of the paper there are images of the artist's face interspersed throughout the pages A very interactive exhibit. Perfect for all. The owners of little fingers should be instructed to be very gentle. Delaney Cooke Gallery, 17 Madison Street, Sag Harbor, 917-445-8427.
