Pop-ups from Prague at the Grolier Club

The Grolier Club in New York City will present "Pop-Ups from Prague" in celebration of the centennial of the Czech artist, children's book illustrator, and paper engineer Vojtěch Kubašta (1914-1992). This is a rare opportunity to see over 100 works by a major pioneer of pop-up book design. 
If you're in New York, the Grolier Club always has an exhibit or two worth seeing; this promises to be something special. There are also several exhibit-related events, including a panel discussion featuring the award-winning paper engineer Robert Sabuda.
For more information on Kubašta and the exhibit, visit: and under "Exhibitions," click "Forthcoming Exhibitions."

Dates: January 23  March 24, 2014.
Hours: Monday – Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm 
Admission: Exhibitions are open to the public free of charge

Assemblages: Paper Works, at the Mt. Airy Art Garage

Exhibit presented by the Mt. Airy Art Garage:

"This show seeks to dispel assumptions about paper art as a medium. Paper is thought to be ephemeral meaning temporary, preliminary and disposable. We challenge these notions and look to present an exhibition that establishes paper works’ place in Fine Arts. The exhibition includes sculpture, collage, drawings, cut paper, letterpress, photography, hand-cut paper design, dimensional collage in boxes and more."


Dates: Thurs. January 16 through Sun. February 16 2014

Gallery hours: Wed.--Sat., Noon--6 PM; Sun. Noon--5 PM

Opening Reception: Fri. January 31, 6--9 PM (Mt. Airy "Finally Friday")
