Scissors for a Brush

Danish-Norwegian artist Karen Bit Vejle

Danish-Norwegian artist Karen Bit Vejle crafts enormous, mind-boggling tableaus—so intricate they look like lace—using just simple scissors and large sheets of paper. Some scenes are humorous, others more serious, but all reveal her personal style. The new exhibit Scissors for a Brush showcases her precision art alongside several original paper cuttings by fellow scissor savant Hans Christian Andersen.

Vejle leads special tours 3/22 and 3/23.
