Beginning in the new year, The Morgan Conservatory will be holding our 10th annual Juried Exhibition.  The process is beginning now for submissions for the exhibition on view March 25th. Our jurors this year are Sienna Brown, a curator at the Cleveland Clinic, and Jared Ledesma, the senior curator at the Akron Art Museum. The theme of the exhibition is Introspection / Retrospection. Any piece that can fall under this category, and consists of 50% paper is eligible as a submission. 

This opportunity is open for artists all across the country, and we love to see our own Cleveland artists submit for this exhibition. Calling forth periods of isolation throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our vision behind the theme for this year's exhibition is to celebrate the art that was conceived in times of isolation and reintegration, which could bring forth periods of introspection and retrospection. 

The invention of paper was a catalyst to the surge of education and development of art around the world. Here at the Morgan, we not only preserve the authentic techniques of papermaking but celebrate the innovation artists are creating with paper as a medium. It continues to trigger inspiration and impact almost every aspect of our lives. With our annual juried exhibition, we are able to continue this exploration and celebration of the paper arts!
