poster for Caroline Stone “Paper and Pigment”

This event has ended.

Some forgotten flat files yielded a treasure-trove of works on paper by Caroline Stone. The colors and textures seemed so fresh; they could have been made last week, although they dated from the 1980’s.

Stone, also an accomplished musician, had been concentrating on her music career for the last 10 years or so, thus her art languishing in the files. She studied at The Art Student’s League and the Pratt Graphics Center, always experimenting with paper.

“Using a blender, some twine, and a rudimentary screen, I made my first sheets of paper, but I postponed using handmade paper until the 1980’s, when I discovered the Dieu Donne Papermill. There, after a lifetime of doing watercolors, drawings and prints, I began making paper and painting with paper pulp. A very tactile and spontaneous medium, paper pulp painting opened the door to a new era of art making for me.” During the 1980’s and 90’s Stone’s work was exhibited here in New York at the Mary Ryan Gallery, and all across the country, gathering reviews and awards and being purchased for numerous collections.

The exhibition includes drawings and prints, but primarily the works incorporating paper pulp and pigment.
