mar. 4, 2011 – mar. 26, 2011         The Importance of Small Things

Brigitte Rutenberg

Brigitte Rutenberg does very detailed ink drawings by the thousands on stamp-sized pieces of vellum paper and Mylar with which she assembles her PAPER QUILTS while her 3-D GLASS BOOKS with ink drawings consist of hinged glass panels reminiscent of the under-glass painting done in the 1800s. With these works she draws attention to “the importance of small things” for which women’s work is traditionally known.
