Lyrical paintings featured in Staniar Gallery exhibit

wl-universityWashington and Lee University’s Staniar Gallery is pleased to open its 2014-2015 year with “Conversing With Time,” an exhibit of paintings and drawings by Minneapolis-based artist Clarence Morgan. The show will be on view Sept. 5 to Oct. 3.

He will give an artist’s talk on Sept. 24, at 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall’s Concert Hall. The lecture will be followed by a reception for the artist. Both exhibit and lecture are free and open to the public.

Morgan’s paintings, drawings and prints reflect a sophisticated understanding of abstraction and composition. His vocabulary of marks ranges from invented shapes to organic forms which he uses to create layers of lyrical networks and dense patterns. Morgan’s deep engagement with the act of drawing leads him to approach each work intuitively, inviting the viewer to follow his process.

Morgan has received fellowships and grants from the Jerome Foundation, Bush Foundation, Southern Arts Federation, McKnight Foundation, Minnesota State Arts Board, North Carolina Arts Council and Art Matters Inc.

His prints, paintings and works on paper can be found in the collections of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Asheville Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art and Weisman Museum of Art, as well as many private collections throughout the U.S.

Morgan is a professor of art at the University of Minnesota.

Staniar Gallery is located on the second floor of Wilson Hall in Washington and Lee’s Lenfest Center for the Arts. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call (540) 458-8861.
