Jess Flegel for The Paperdoll September 2009

The Paperdoll is proud to present “By and By”, a new collection of collage work by multi-media artist Jess Flegel.

Flegel’s Paperdoll debut "By and By" features over 35 small hand stitched paper and mixed media collage pieces. Stamps from her childhood collection, traditional quilting textiles, as well as scenery and photographs from her native Chicago and current home Bellingham are presented like postcards from Flegel's life. Her work, though deeply personal, inspires a search for a sense of place that is something we can all relate to.

Born and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois, Flegel received her BFA at Judson University. After graduating, Flegal relocated to Bellingham, where she has been living and working for the past six years. Much of Flegel's work is inspired by looking back at her roots, geographically, as well as through family traditions. These inspirations are prominent in her most recent collection.

Please join us for the Opening Reception this Friday, September 4, 2009 from 6-10PM(During the Downtown Gallery Walk) Live music, refreshments and artist meet and greet to accompany opening!

can't wait to see you there!
