By A Thousand Cuts-An exhibition of works of paper and cardboard


Location: Parlor Gallery

Description: Parlor Gallery presents:

“By A Thousand Cuts”
An exhibition featuring a visual feast of paper and cardboard based art with an intense medium-driven focus. Most artists have a primal drive to create physical things with their hands, and it’s manifestation is explored and celebrated in the art curated by Parlor Gallery for their latest group exhibit, “By A
Thousand Cuts”. The featured artists use the seemingly “simple” and often discarded material to create works that defy concepts of standard and traditional art making. To create and
complete these works requires patience, stamina, physical pain and a sometimes a bit of OCD.

New to the gallery is Jillian Salik, a New York-based artist who is currently “possessed“ by the world of corrugated cardboards and creates intricate replicas of ornate frames often in large
scale installations that challenge our perception of the otherwise low-brow material.

Also exhibiting for the first time is artist, Chelsea Hynrick Browne, whose work is described as ‘obsessive detailed repetition’. Chelsea hand-cuts paper into unique intricate patterns over and over again until the layers form a larger abstract ‘painting’. What begins as a precise form evolves into something interpretive, elusive and beautiful.

The work of artist Julia Ibbini, consigned through and discovered at Jonathan Levine Projects in Jersey City, is pure papermagic. Ibbini’s current practice involves translating complex drawings into layered laser cut paper pieces and an entire work takes many weeks with up to 60 layers in a single piece.

This paper based exhibit also features some local favorites, Matt Crabe and gallery re-curring superstar, James Vance

“By A Thousand Cuts” opens, Saturday, March 24th and the reception is from 7-11 pm (free & open to the public.) The other artists featured are: Jillian Salik, Matt Crabe, Chelsea Hrynick
Browne, Emerson Cooper, Marcel Lisbon, Caryn Ann Bendrick, Bill Barminski, Neil Powell, James Vance and Julia Ibbini.

Description: Fresh on the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS (Algonquin Books), comedian Paula Poundstone is entertaining audiences across the country and leaving them complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and wondering if the random people she talks to are plants. Of course, they never are.

Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR ' s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious. She is made of funny. If you chopped her into bits, each piece would be hilarious. (But don ’ t.) Air becomes funny having been breathed by her. "

A star of several HBO specials and her own series on ABC and HBO, Poundstone voiced the character " Forgetter Paula " in the Academy Award winning feature film INSIDE OUT. She was th e first woman to share the dais with the President and perform standup comedy at the White House Correspondents Dinner. She won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic and is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time. She has released three performance CD ' s, her most recent, NORTH BY NORTHWEST - a double-live CD-set (HighBridge Audio).

Paula adds another medium to her impressive repertoire on July 8, 2017 when she launches her new weekly podcast - LIVE FROM THE POUNDSTONE INSTITUTE. Joined by a live and lively audience, and her Chief of Research and fellow Wait Wait Panelist, Adam Felber, Poundstone takes on the research studies that are so odd they just beg for someone to stand up and say " wait, what?! " The podcast is produced in association with NPR station KPCC and distributed by NPR.

On stage, Poundstone is known for her casual style, smart, observational humor, and a razor sharp spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend. Garri son Keillor described her as " the bravest and best improv comic of our time. " THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS climbed to #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list for Humor CD ' s on its first day of release, and landed in #1 or i n the top-10 in Humor lists in Hardcover, Kindle, Audible and CD in too many categories to mention - all the while garnering great reviews. Kirkus - one of the most notable review sources - called the book " A deeply revealing memoir in which the pathos doesn’t kill the hum or … delivers more than it promises. " NY Journal of Books : " For readers who want a break from the current madness in the world and a good dose of Poundstone humor, this book will certainly provide. " Tony and Emmy Award- winner Lily Tomlin described the book as " A remarkable journey. I laughed. I cried. I got another cat. "
