Event Details


“Cut It Out!”, A Solo Exhibition featuring collage artist Betsy Silverman. On view for the months of August and September at Edgewater Gallery at the Falls. Betsy Silverman is new to the gallery  and we are excited to introduce her work to the Edgewater community!

Betsy Silverman’s artwork, which she describes as fragmented realism, combines her architectural sensibilities with her training in color theory to evoke tension between magazine graphics and unique views of New England life.  Her works are made entirely of recycled magazine paper on canvas.
Silverman studied architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design and it was there that her experimentation with recycled paper began. She used recycled paper to create structures and then broadened her use of the medium to experiment with the found color and design on each magazine page, drawing from this expansive source to create complex compositions in cut paper, including landscapes, cityscapes and animals. For the artist, it is important that she is using a material that is recycled, accessible, and has a low impact on the environment. Silverman’s collection for Edgewater is made up of familiar Vermont scenes, livestock, and still life designs. Viewers will at first be drawn to the vibrant, energetic realism of each composition, and then fascinated by the artist’s ability to search out the magazine fragments whose hues, and graphic markings, cut to fit, will be instrumental in creating the intricate composition.
We are pleased to have our gallery doors open and to be able to invite our customers to see this exhibition in person! We recognize however, that this is still a time to be cautious and to follow current health guidelines, and so though we are open for business, we will continue to offer our exhibitions virtually at
