Jessica Richter and Waltraude Stehwien: Scissor Cuts/ Scherenschnitte

A special partnership with the Saskatchewan German Council. Toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program.

Scherenschnitte (scissor cuts) is an art form where silhouettes are cut from one piece of special black paper with scissors or knives with no ‘hangers’- unattached pieces. Scissor cutting has a long history in German folk art; immigrants brought Scherenschnitte to North America in the 17th Century. Reflecting the Canadian artists in Scissor Cuts/ Scherenschnitte, this collection of works ranges from traditional German Scherenschnitte represented by Waltraude Stehwien, a German immigrant, to papercut evolved into sculpture by Jess Richter- second generation born in Canada.

For more information on where the exhibit will be next, please visit the Organization of Saskatchewan’s Arts Council’s website.
