Juoror's Statement:

Though the Morgan Conservatory's 8th Annual Juried Exhibition call placed few restrictions on submissions, strong themes emerged from the more than 500 works offered for consideration. Many dealt with timely political topics such as immigration and gun violence or important social issues including the role of language in forming personal identity and the challenges of facing unrealistic beauty standards. Paper has a long history as a medium used to quickly and efficiently spread ideas through words and images printed onto posters and inside of pamphlets and books. Our selections evince that paper remains a potent tool for disseminating information and calls to action. Another common quality shared among this year's submissions was keen attention to materials and process. We selected pieces that demonstrate the artists’ deep understanding of the material properties of their chosen medium and their skill in using multiple techniques to convey resonant ideas.
