"Chasing the Cherubim: Snowflake Paper Cuttings" by Dr. Thomas L. Clark.
Gifts of Art presents the exhibit “Chasing the Cherubim: Snowflake Paper Cuttings” by Dr. Thomas L. Clark, a.k.a. Dr. Snowflake. It is presented from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. through Feb. 1 in the Gifts of Art Gallery, Taubman Health Center North Lobby, Floor 1.
Clark’s hand-cut paper creations highlight work from his two collections, “Chasing the Cherubim” and “Fiery Furnace.” Cherubim, the higher order of angels, are guardians representing divine authority in human life. Clark explores themes of changing human experience and consciousness and the evolution of authority though images of these winged beings and other manifestations.
A former U-M physician, Clark has been exhibiting his snowflakes at U-M Hospitals since 1987. The annual free snowflake-making workshop is noon-2 p.m. Jan. 8 at the exhibit site. Bring scissors.
