Papier-Mâchete: A national competition for artists creating work using paper.

Presented By
Plaza Artist Materials

For thousands of years, paper as been one of the most common surfaces for making art. Paper is a universal language in art that has spanned almost all periods and movements in art. Not only has paper been used as a surface for making art, it is also used as a medium in itself. Papier-Mâchete will explore the limitless range found in these ubiquitous materials. Artists from across the nation will submit their works to compete for cash prizes. 2D and 3D artwork will be accepted and will display innovative and inventive uses of paper and associated fibers.

Artwork has been submitted from artists nationally and selected by our jurors Richard Waller, Aaron McIntosh and Amie Oliver.
