National Juried Exhibition 2019
The Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory and Educational Foundation is proud to present our seventh annual and third National Juried Exhibition.
The invention of paper contributed greatly to the rise of literacy and art around the world. For the past 2000 years, paper has evolved in a multitude of directions. It continues to inspire and impact almost every aspect of our lives. The artwork in this exhibition celebrates paper’s versatility as a medium and represents a selection of innovative and visually striking approaches by contemporary artists.
The jurors had an incredibly difficult time selecting the works due to such high quality of submissions. This year, we received a record breaking 587 submissions from 320 talented artists living in 37 states. The exhibition features 61 works by 54 artists in handmade paper, bookbinding, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
We’d like to extend our gratitude to all of the artists who participated. This was our most competitive exhibition to date and it wouldn’t be possible without your submissions and boundless creativity!
We’d also like a give a big thank you to this year’s jurors for their tenacity and curatorial vision.
