Paperhand Puppets’

One More Drop in the Bucket

in the Nicholson Gallery

Paperhand_2016

For the past 20 years, Jan Burger and Donovan Zimmerman have been creating in collaboration with each other and a host of artists from the Triangle and beyond. They were both drawn to puppetry because of the Maximal appeal of an art form that allows you to explore many art forms. They both design, draw, sculpt, paint, sew, write, act, dance, play music and whatever else necessary to achieve their goals. Their vision is inspired by the compelling tapestry of stories that connects us all as well as their love of the natural world. They put their efforts continually into bringing these themes, myths, and stories to life through an annual giant puppet spectacle that feature masks, painted cardboard, shadows, and much more. Over the years they have amassed hundreds of masks, giant puppets and shadows that they house in their studio in Saxapahaw NC.

 

This show is an improvisational installation chosen, somewhat at random from the Paperhand studio collection. Enjoy!

Opening Reception: Friday, July 8th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display July 1-31.
