"Modern Marbles" Library Art Exhibit

“Modern Marbles” Art Exhibit of marbled papers by Jenniffer Collier.

“Modern Marbles” will be up in the Bay County Public Library for the month of April 2017.

In the collection of work, for Modern Marble, Jennifer Collier combines historical patterns from Turkey, France, Italy, and England, using highly saturated, non-traditional colors to enhance the art of the original design. Marbled paper historically was used for hundreds of years to adorn the exterior or interior of important manuscripts.

What is Marbling? It is the creative act of using watercolor or water thinned paint that has been dispersed on a bed of thickened water (carrageenan), to create original and ornate designs by either raking, manipulating, or drawing with a thin tool into the water/paint surface. Each print pulled is essentially a monoprint after a sheet of prepared paper is carefully laid on top of the inked water.
