The Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory and Educational Foundation is pleased to present its latest exhibition Rags Make Paper – An Inaugural Juried Exhibition from August 9 through September 14th. This exhibition was open to artists who live and work within a 75 mile radius of Cleveland.


This exhibition showcases over 130 works created by 81 regional artists. Gallery attendees will see the limitless nature of paper within the realm of art making. From a substrate for printing, painting and drawing to a medium for sculpting and manipulating texture, the characteristics of the fibers are pushed to their physical and conceptual limits in the work that was selected for this show. We are proud to present these pieces of art created within our own neighborhoods that stand as a testament to the vibrant, creative and talented community of artists we have in northeast Ohio.

Bruce Checefsky is the Gallery Director for the Reinberger Galleries at the Cleveland Institute of Art. He is also a photographer whose work often explores unconventional equipment and methods of capturing his subjects. His work can be found in many permanent collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. www.brucechecefsky.com

Robert Thurmer is the Gallery Director for the CSU Art Galleries and teaches Museum Studies as well as Studio art at Cleveland State University. He is a conceptual sculptor using materials such as neon lights and most recently tar to create representational forms with a historical context. His work has been exhibited internationally with a recent solo show at Arts Collinwood Gallery titled “Dark Matter.” www.robertthurmer.com
