Saturday, Monday On Paper, Gallery Oldham, Greaves Street, Oldham, 10am to 5pm

See paper in a new light. From collage to sculpture, corrugated card to blotting paper, this Arts Council Collection Touring exhibition features a huge range of approaches.

The show features work on paper which have been burnt, torn and cut by artists such as Roger Ackling, Cornelia Parker, Tim Davies and Simon Periton. Artists have also long used paper to construct three-dimensional objects such as Lesley Foxcroft's two-tone corrugated bricks.

Collage is perhaps the most obvious form of cut paper work whilst other artists have created paper works which have been rubbed, folded and embossed. For some artists, the choice of a particular paper was an improtant consideration, and these include graph paper, and old envelope or even an Ordnance Survey map.

Check out for details of the Papercraft Workshops that accompany this show (over 16s only).
