PAPER CUTS — “Paper Cuts,” an exhibit scheduled for the Burchfield Nature and Art Center gallery in August, was canceled due to the Burchfield building closure. The exhibit has been relocated to the Gyda Higgins Art Gallery at Fox Run, 5689 Big Tree Road in Orchard Park.

The exhibit will be on view from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, from Tuesday, June 27, to Friday, Sept. 1.

Exhibit organizer Dave Reichard is one of 12 artists in the “Paper Cuts” show and is a volunteer with the Burchfield.

The exhibit will feature traditional German scherenschnitte, Polish wycinanki, Victorian paper lace cuttings, multi-layered paper creations and works based on a fusion of paper cutting and watercolors. The show will feature the work of artists from Western New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.

An opening reception for “Paper Cuts” will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 29. For more information, call Michelle Bermingham at 662-5001.
