7th National Collegiate Paper Art Triennial

Title wall for the 7th National Collegiate Paper Art Triennial

"Forgotten Identity" is a striking 30' handmade paper panel that has been woodblock printed and screenprinted. At first glance, the paper appears black but closer inspection reveals a red underside and small colored details. The panel drapes down from the ceiling, unfurling into a circular form on the floor where small cast paper figures of women interact with one another and the panel as it undulates on the floor.

September - November 2020

The Triennial celebrates its 20th anniversary, since its first opening reception in December, 1999 at the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking in Atlanta, GA. It was imagined in a conversation between Lynn Sures and Cindy Bowden, as a show highlighting the work done by college students in the field of papermaking.

This year’s jurors, Buzz Spector and Tatiana Ginsberg, have chosen 37 works by 35 students, from 15 universities nationally. Spector is an artist, critic, and professor of Art at Washington University, St. Louis, MO. Tatiana Ginsberg is an artist and educator and is the co-director of Artistic Projects and Master Collaborator at Dieu Donne Papermill in Brooklyn, NY.

The Triennial exhibit also was at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA, and the Morgan Conservatory, Cleveland, OH

Founding Director: Lynn Sures

Co-Director: Megan Singleton 

The Handmade Paper Art Triennial is an institutional affiliate of the North American Hand Papermakers (formerly the Friends of Dard Hunter).
