A captivating white, arcing sculpture fills the center of the room, abstract shapes reminiscent of lanterns cover the ceiling, one wall is dotted with three-dimensional koi, the wall running parallel features several apparently pixelated images of a hand. All these works of art are made from the same material: paper. “Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami” reimagines and breathes new life into the ancient Japanese art of folding paper. The exhibit, on display at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture through July 15, features nine artists showcasing a variety of works with themes ranging from the personal to the political.
