Stansbury Art and Lit Artist of the Month
The Stansbury Art and Lit Chamber Wall Gallery artist for the month of April is Melissa Clark. Fifteen years ago, Melissa discovered scherenchitte, or paper cutting.

She has found it a stimulating challenge to reduce images to their simplest black and white shapes while maintaining the integrity of the original shape.
