The Cutting Edge

Choosing artworks from the Woodson Art Museum’s permanent collection to amplify the themes of Cut Up/Cut Out, the current temporary exhibition, was thoroughly enjoyable. Sometimes making a connection between temporary exhibition themes and Museum collection artwork is difficult. In this instance, to complement Cut Up/Cut Out, I looked to the collection’s extensive holdings of woodcuts and linocuts and the processes used to make those prints.

A Small Piece of Heaven – The Woodson was perfect for us. We loved the beautiful grounds, stunning building, and magnificent displays. We hope to return, again and again. I almost forgot to mention, it’s free!!!

Such a wonderful resource. The quality of showings that the Museum shares with our community is nothing less than impressive. The docents are knowledgeable and welcoming. I always enjoy my time there.
