The journey begins at Dundee Contemporary Art to produce a series of large-scale woodcut prints that can compress into a suitcase and reanimate into a sculptural installation. Following the creation of the work in Dundee, the Traveling Suitcase Installation Project will embark on an expedition of short-term pop-up exhibitions in Dundee, London, Berlin, Weimar and Venice.

Paper Jam, the first juried exhibition at Bone Black Studio and Gallery in the Canopy arts complex, opens Friday, March 13th, with a reception from 6 to 8pm. The show features fifteen works on paper in a variety of media. Nicholas Skowron, a professor in the Printmaking department at Kent State University, chose pieces from the applicants whose work speaks to the relation between the concepts of system and nostalgia. Participating artists hail from all over the United States, including a few from Texas, to as far away as Newcastle, England. The exhibition, cosponsored by the Women Printmakers of Austin and Flash Collective, will be on display until April 17th.
