Sustainability in Chaos

January 16- April 12, 2024

The North American Hand Papermakers' 2023 Juried Exhibition is called Sustainability in Chaos. We are pleased and honored to have Helen Hiebert and Eileen Wallace as the 2023 jurors.

We are witnessing sudden, surprising, and sometimes unexpected changes in our time and lifestyle today. Anarchy, war, and disease have become our nation's daily concerns and only news. Even if we do not face these situations directly, in our social and economic lives, wherever we are, we witness the prevalence of chaos in various forms. Artists have shown their animus in chaotic human situations in different ways, such as through visualizations, music, poetry, photography, etc. They depict it in dream-like abstractions, express it in realistic depictions of life, inform the mind, or convey their empathy through art.
