Clouds of Cut-Paper

"Honeycomb Clouds" by Celeste Cooning

The University of Washington is 150 years old and it celebrated last weekend with Husky Fest.  I stopped by the big tent on Red Square, a temporary pavilion and Husky Fest central, to see the cut-paper installations by Seattle artist Celeste Cooning.  I like paper crafts of all kinds, but Cooning’s “Honeycomb Clouds” took this type of art to a new level.  I’ll be keeping my eyes out for new works by this local artist.
