This year's Morgan Rising was an evening filled with art, friends new and old, as well as a shared commitment to supporting the art of papermaking in MidTown Cleveland. We want to take a moment to express our gratitude to everyone who attended and volunteered, playing a vital role in making this event possible. Your presence, dedication, and contributions, whether in the form of time, artwork, resources, or boundless enthusiasm, made the event shine! You are the driving force behind the Morgan's growth and its continued relevance in the community, in the arts and beyond.
Before we conclude, let's celebrate the lucky winner of the "Morgan Kaleidoscopic Cornucopia" Raffle Basket. Congratulations, Cale Ours! This delightful basket includes a variety of Morgan handmade papers, a 15th-anniversary T-shirt and poster, a beautifully handbound journal created by Fran Kovac, and a custom 3-hour workshop for up to six people, to be hosted in the winner's studio of choice. We hope Cale enjoys these treasures and continues to be inspired by the art of papermaking.
