New Exhibition April 5-7 in Paris

My partner Ioana Stoian and I will be participating in a new exhibition on the weekend of April 5-6-7 in Yerres, France (on the southern edge of Paris). It’s for the Salon des Artisans & Metiers d’Art (Salon of artisans and masters of art) show at the Propriété Caillebotte, a beautiful chateau with extensive grounds and exhibition space. We are two of the 30 invited artists to be a part of this event, and are displaying together with a small number of other paper artists. We’re very excited about this opportunity, and will be exhibiting some of our largest origami pieces- including the 25 meter long piece we created last October. I can’t wait to see people’s reactions to this work!

Right now we’re wrapping up our pieces for the event, and working hard to finish the layout for Ioana’s upcoming new book – “Origami for All: Elegant Designs from Simple Folds“. We have a busy schedule of origami convention appearances in May and several teaching events in June and July, so the next few months will involve a lot of travel around Europe for art and origami-related workshops and events. Phew!

Hope to see some of our French paper friends in Yerres in two weeks time!
