Andrew Morgan: An Exhibition of Paintings from 1991 – 2001
August 31 – October 14, 2001
The Gallery of Fine Art, Edison Community College, is pleased to announce its next exhibit, Andrew Morgan: An Exhibition of Paintings from 1991 – 2001. This exhibit of paintings by Andrew Morgan spans the past decade and includes mesmerizing views of the Oregon coast, vibrant still lifes as well as impressions of Florida and New Mexico. Lush, vibrant and lyrical, these paintings, completed in the refined medium of oil bar, clearly show Andrew’s connection and commitment to still life and landscape. More to the point though, they show his command of the medium, the picture plane and color as an expressive vehicle.
Andrew’s highly successful professional career has been two-sided, including both academics and studio work. Andrew’s academic accomplishments include being the Chairman of the Art Department at the University of Mississippi, President of the Kansas City Art Institute, and Chairman of the Art Department at the University of Miami, among others. As a studio artist Andrew’s work has been included in numerous exhibitions and can be found in dozens of private collections as well as the collection of the University of Texas, The Art Museum at Florida International University, University of Mississippi and Weatherspoon Museum at the University of North Carolina, to name a few.
This exhibit, organized by the Gallery of Fine Art, will travel next to the Gulf Coast Museum of Art, Largo, Florida, then to the Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, and finally to Kennesaw State University Art Gallery, Kennesaw, Georgia.
The Gallery of Fine Art, Edison Community College, received a grant from the Richard Florsheim Art Fund for the publication of the catalog to accompany the traveling exhibit.
