More than Renovations
Morgan Conservatory has done some growing in 2015. Major renovations were completed early in the year that resulted in working offices, cubicles, a store and even a kitchen! We have accomplished more than renovations. We have acquired some new staff members as well.
Radha Pandey is Morgan Conservatory’s Studio Coordinator. She earned her MFA in Book Arts from the University of Iowa’s Center for the Book where she was a recipient of the Iowa Arts Fellowship. She has studied Western and Asian Papermaking techniques with Timothy Barrett and teaches book arts classes in India and the US.
Her interest in the history of papermaking led her to research creation of stop-motion animations using watermarks. This became a part of her graduate thesis work, along with dimensional cast paper sculptures, and a hand-printed book of botanical anatomies titled Anatomia Botanica that won the MICA Book Award at the Pyramid Atlantic Book Fair in 2014.
Her artist books have been exhibited in the US and abroad, and are represented most recently in the Artists’ Books Collection at Cleveland Institute of Art. Currently, Pandey is working on developing Islamic world papers for applications in conservation.
Jennifer White is Morgan Conservatory’s Communications & Development Coordinator. She is a graduate of The Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University. As one of the top 10 urban affairs schools in the nation, the nonprofit administration program has equipped Ms. White with the management, development and communications skills needed for her role at the Morgan.
Ms. White is experienced in leading diverse groups of people in a variety of environments. You may see her around delegating tasks to volunteers, providing tours, or see her writing & style in your email. When she isn’t at the Morgan, you can probably catch her around the city of Cleveland with her camera.
Kyle Holland is Morgan Conservatory’s Workshop and Paper Sales Coordinator. He earned his BFA in printmaking from Memphis College of Art in 2012. His work has been exhibited internationally, including recent shows at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN; The Printmaking Center of New Jersey in Branchburg, NJ; the Center for Book Arts in New York City; and the King St. Stephen Museum in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. His work is in the collections of the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum, the Nevada Museum of Art, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Yale University among others. Holland was awarded the Scholarship for Advanced Studies in Book Arts at the New York Center for Book Arts in 2012 and was selected to participate in the 11th portfolio published by Hand Papermaking, Inc._Negative Space in Handmade Paper: Picturing the Void, in 2013. Holland currently lives and works in Cleveland, OH where he continues his artistic practice in addition to teaching papermaking and bookbinding workshops.
