Artist Melissa Jay Craig will exhibit her unique art made from paper at Rockford
College’s Art Gallery from November 12 – December 12.

Craig uses paper from fibers she processes and sometimes harvests herself. She says she chooses handmade paper specifically for its environmental impact, versatility, variety and perceived fragility. Her work explores the variety of ways we all gather knowledge in our lives, whether from text, images, sounds, or any combination of the senses.

A reception for Craig will be held November 12, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the gallery. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Art gallery hours are Tuesday, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.; Wednesday, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.; Thursday, noon – 3 p.m.; Friday, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.; Saturday, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
The gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays. 

The exhibitions in the Rockford College Art Gallery are made possible, in part,   through the generosity of Lon and Richard Behr.
