Register by phone at 216-361-9255 or online at <www.morganconservatory.org>.
 
Experiment with casting paper, pulling paper, coloring paper and pushing the limits of this flexible medium. Immerse yourself in the language of fiber from the perspective of James Pernotto, a nationally recognized artist and educator. Work sculpturally, painterly, graphically, or just pull sheets of paper. The art lab will be in full swing at the Morgan. You can take advantage of all the possibilities, use a variety of tools, work on a large scale and combine print and paper. Let your imagination expand and challenge James and Tom who will be there to guide you through your paper extravaganza experience. This workshop will also include a collaborative project generated by all participants.

Tom Balbo is a Cleveland artist whose work is nationally known and collected. He graduated from Baldwin-Wallace College with a B.A. in Studio Arts. He completed his Masters Degree at Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts where he was awarded a Syracuse University Fellowship Grant and a Ford Foundation Grant. Tom's earliest work was principally in ceramics and printmaking but his focus also includes paper casting and pulp paintings. Over the past three years Tom has been dedicated to the establishment of the Morgan Foundation where he serves as the Executive Director.

Jim Pernotto began making paper in 1975 when Joe Wilfer, Mr. Paper invited him to this Upper U.S. Papermill in Wisconsin. Jim was hooked immediately and that fall he attended the 1st International Conference of Hand Papermakers in Appleton, Wisconsin that was organized by Wilfer. Jim's work is illustrated in Jules Heller's seminal book, Papermaking and his art on paper was exhibited in several of the seminal exhibitions such as The Handmade Paper Object and Paper as Medium that were devoted to the art of handmade paper. For more than 20 years Pernotto has played, invented and pushed the parameters of the medium, with particular attention to sculpture and relief. Pernotto has taught papermaking and lectured at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Parsons School of Design, Rutgers, Ohio State University and others. As curator of prints at Butler Institute of American Art, Pernotto organized Chuck Close: Editions, a nationally touring exhibition of the complete edition works on paper by Close.
