For most people, paper is an ordinary object with purely practical value. But for artist Melissa Button, it’s one of several art media in a body of work exploring the intersection of order and structure with chaos and nature.

See works reflecting diverse influences from architecture to Chinese culture during the free opening reception for her “Paper Expeditions” exhibition from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, September 1, during the Scottsdale ArtWalk. It’s happening at Tilt Gallery, 7077 East Main Street, where you can also meet the artist.

Through her work, Button seeks to reveal “an underlying beauty and balance that supersedes the individual and is a part of all things.” Clearly, paper has a higher purpose beyond grocery lists and office memos. Visit
