In Search of A Second Moon:
A Tom Balbo Exhibition
September 24 to October 9
Celebration: October 2
5:30 - 9pm
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10 am - 4 pm
An exhibition of works by our founder and Artistic Director, Tom Balbo.
The Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory is showcasing the works of founder Tom Balbo this fall in this newly announced exhibition, In Search of A Second Moon. Substituting the annual benefit this year, this exhibition will be a culmination of the works Tom has created during the past 18 months. Drawing on the pandemic, isolation, quarantine, as well as nature, wildlife, shape, and color, this exhibition will leave guests awed by the sheer magnitude of works.
There will be a celebration on October 2, where Tom will be showcasing his process and giving demonstrations of the pieces being exhibited in the show. Most importantly, every item in the show will be available for sale, with a percentage being donated back to the Morgan. With Tom working closely with our artists in residence, the proceeds will be going towards further developing and continuing that program. If you have been a proprietor of Tom’s work for years or just starting your collection, this exhibition will be the perfect opportunity for you to pay it forward while also joining in celebrating Tom’s outstanding work.
