Nancy Schwartz-Katz’ Borders and Boundaries at Shaker Community Gallery
The Shaker Community Gallery is located in a sunlit Chapel of the Christ Episcopal Church where Schwartz-Katz also has her studio.
Artist Nancy Schwartz-Katz is known nationally for her work in papercutting, specializing in Old Testament and Judaic art. In Borders and Boundaries, Schwartz-Katz explores the complex crossover of the contemporary social issues of values and vices.
The folk art of Jewish papercutting has been practiced by Jewish communities in Eastern Europe, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, and Northern Africa presumably since the fourth century. In Judaism, paper-cut art continues to be used for decorative religious purposes. In Borders and Boundaries, Nancy—through her craft of papercutting—explores contemporary social issues.
