The Sound of Paper: Jennifer Kane at Bellefonte Art Museum

Jan 26, 2022 | AA Member Exhibitions, Exhibitions, Latest News

Beginning January 31, the Bellefonte Art Museum will host Jennifer Kane’s exhibition, The Sound of Paper (Above and Below).

About the Exhibition

Since its invention in China around 200 B.C., paper has transformed our ability to retain and transmit ideas and knowledge. It is also a wonderfully varied and pliable surface for drawing and painting.

Jennifer began making works on paper as a way to transport her art in her suitcase on travel, and because stretched canvases required more space to store. In the end, she fell in love with paper for it’s many lovely qualities, claiming it as her own favorite material to work on in any medium.

In this exhibit, the norms of making works on paper are tested. With inks, acrylic, and composite gold leaf, Jennifer coaxes the materials to interact with one another in new ways to create her pieces. From tiny to quite large, you will see a broad range of scale represented.


  • Paulette Lorraine Berner Community Gallery (Bellefonte Art Museum)
  • January 31–February 27
  • Fridays, Saturdays, & Sundays from 12:00pm–4:30pm
