The first of November saw local artist Tom Pender’s art display come to a close, but our “Wallingford Inspires…” art wall wasn’t vacant for long! Yesterday we were privileged to welcome the fifth local artist and their work to our wall, Doll Barnes. Doll is a well-known artist in the area whose chosen medium is an unusual one, Paper Sculpture. And, her work is amazingly beautiful!
Art Meets Craft
“When I was introduced to Paper Sculpture, I realized it was the perfect marriage between art and craft,” Doll says. “Despite planning to become a portrait artist, I veered off in a totally new direction. I found the skills that I had honed crafting were easily transferred into the art of Paper Sculpture.” We couldn’t agree more, as her work shows beautiful intricacy and depth of detail.
Pat and I are very pleased to have Doll’s work on display for the next two months, and we hope you’ll stop into our office to check it out. Here are some examples of what is here:
