Andrea Martin’s Monarch Garden: She is a paper cutter who makes magic with an Exacto knife.
The Backyard Roosters of Saint Paul: a book of whimsy.
Come to the Market (if you leave hungry, it’s your own fault), and to The Art Shoppe and the work of 90 Minnesota Artists.
Andrea Martin who has taken the art of paper cutting to the stratosphere, has a show at Robbin Gallery, and you must go to see it. In addition to the images below, she will be showing an astonishing 4×6′ Mad Hatter’s Tea Party which I promise will take your breath away.
The opening reception is October 3 from 2-4.
Andrea uses x-acto knives to make her cuts. She has introduced glorious color into her work.
