Open House at Morgan Paper 

When: Sat., Oct. 2 2010

Two years ago, the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory took over a former machine shop on the near West Side and moved in the hulking equipment required for making handcrafted art papers. Since then, it’s hosted an array of classes and workshops devoted to making specialty papers and using them to create prints, handmade artist books, and other objects. It’s brought in guest artists from Cleveland and other areas to teach and exhibit in its spacious galleries. From 6 to 10 p.m. tonight, Morgan hosts its annual open house to introduce aficionados as well as novices to the laborious but satisfying process of making beautiful paper by hand through demonstrations — but stand back! It’s messy. They’ll also display and sell the finished product in an auction of artwork made from Morgan paper. Live music, raffles, food, and a cash bar round out the free festivities. The conservatory is at 1754 East 47th St.; call 216-361-9255 or go to morganconservatory.org for more information. — Pantsios
