NAHP 8th Collegiate Paper Triennial
This summer, the Morgan Papermaking Conservatory is honored to be one of four venues hosting the North American Hand Papermakers (NAHP) 8th Collegiate Paper Triennial exhibition. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, June 23rd from 6-9pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
The Collegiate Paper Art Triennial is a competitive exhibition that features a variety of contemporary art forms made with handmade paper, such as sculpture, printmaking, painting, pulp paintings, artist's books, and installations. The Triennial was co-founded in 1999 by Lynn Sures of the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC, and Cindy Bowden of the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking in Atlanta, GA. It highlights artwork created with handmade paper by undergraduate and graduate students from across North America and aims to provide students with an opportunity to express their creativity, expand their networks, and advance their careers.
Join us for the opening reception on Friday, June 23rd from 6-9pm. Light refreshments will be provided. During the opening reception, attendees are encouraged to vote for the Viewer’s Choice award which will be announced at the end of the night and on the Morgan Conservatory’s social media (@morganpaper).
The 8th Collegiate Paper Triennial exhibition will be on view at the Morgan Conservatory Gallery from June 23rd to August 5th, 2023. The Morgan Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am-4pm.
