The Word Project was conceived by Sue Katz. Sue wrote: “ it's about the concept and how the words/numbers are "embedded" or actually in the work - it's about "aboutness" according to Arthur C. Danto - that the meaning actually be in the work, not just an idea in the title or the statement but in the formal elements and the composition and so on.”
The Paper Project was conceived by Lelia Weinstein. Lelia wrote: “My idea was to stimulate three dimensional work. This could be coming off the wall by attaching paper to a panel or 3 D work that has paper as a strong element. Paper and wax are an interesting combination as the wax stiffens paper and paper lightens the final piece. The ability to shape paper in so many ways seemed like an easy way to encourage new work.”
New England Wax members have requested combining the two projects. Anything goes. Interested members are invited to re-submit and or submit new images for an on-line exhibit now, in 2017, on our blog.
