The Pop-Up Art of David A. Carter

The art of David A. Carter, Auburn resident and world-renowned pop-up book artist, is being shown at the Auburn City Hall Gallery at 1225 Lincoln Way.

As was said of Carter's book "White Noise" in the November 6, 2009, New York Times Sunday Book Review: "Besides the joy bestowed by Carter's fancy...It proves that exuberant, nonrepresentational art can be just as thought-provoking as realistic art, and, most important, that print and paper can be as much fun as a computer game, if not more so."

Never before seen by the public, Carter's paintings, collages and hand-done paper-engineering are on display. Visitors have the extraordinary opportunity to see Carter's step-by-step creative process from a first sketch to a fully-engineered pop-up book. Many of Carter's original paintings and collages can be purchased at this show.

The City Hall Gallery is normally open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm, but the public has the opportunity to see this show at a free after-hours closing reception on Friday, March 23 from 7 to 9pm. Don't miss your chance to see the amazing personal creative work of Auburn artist, David A. Carter...and bring the kids!
