New exhibits at the Dennos

TRAVERSE CITY — Two new exhibitions open Sunday, Jan. 19, at the Dennos Museum Center, 1410 College Dr., on the main campus of Northwestern Michigan College.

“Making Paper Dance: The Art of Pop-Up Books” continues through April 6. It will feature an extensive range of pop-up books from the 1800s to the present on loan from private collections and the Special Collections Library at the University of Michigan, along with selected paper sculptural works by U-M paper engineer Matt Schlian.

Paper engineer and pop-up book designer Bruce Foster will give two programs on Saturday, Jan. 18, in conjunction with the exhibit. He will guide children ages 6-15 through the steps to make his and author Mo Willems’ pop-up book “Big Frog Can’t Fit In” from 10-11 a.m. Foster also will lead a “Horntail Dragon v. Harry Potter” workshop for adults and families from 2-3 p.m. The cost for each program is $25 for museum members; $30 for non-members. One parent may come per child at no additional cost.

“Gwen Marston: Contemporary Quilts” will be on display through April 27. It offers a survey of more than 30 works Marston has done including some of her “Small Studies,” which were exhibited at the Taupo Museum in Taupo, New Zealand, in July 2013. Her book, “37 Sketches” will be available in the museum gift shop.

Marston will lead a workshop in conjunction with the contemporary quilts exhibit from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, March 8. Students will work with free-form, improvisational construction to create their own original quilts using Marston’s design concepts and techniques. The class is suitable for beginning and advanced, traditional and art quilters. The cost is $80 for museum members; $100 for non-members.
