ROOM 100: Paper Trails, 6 to 9 p.m. Runs until Sept. 26.
The Durham Art Guild presents Paper Trails, featuring mixed-media art work by DAG member artist Linda Ide.
Says Ide in her artist statement: Paper Trails came about out of an impulse to look more closely at the way I work. A year ago I decided to set myself the experimental assignment of trying to start a series of works all in the same general way. What I chose, arbitrarily, was to start with the collage end of my combination of media . . . and to do so by working with paper. Many, many trails of paper have since littered my studio and spilled like someone leaving breadcrumbs from my studio into the rest of my house.
