Art Exhibit: Magical Mystery
Name: Art Exhibit: Magical Mystery
Date: March 28, 2022 - May 1, 2022
Sonoma County artist, Gail Morgan, presents Magical Mystery, a collection of monotype abstracts that express the intriguing, and sometimes spiritual, mysteries of creating art. Morgan draws inspiration from Einstein: “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” Gleaning her theme from nature, landscape elements, or figurative shapes, the artist explores this mystery as she works. Form evokes memory and color inspires emotion – the artist chooses a palette depending on her mood, keeping the color consistent throughout a day of printing. Each piece is unique and original because the ink, usually oil-based or encaustic, is transferred once to the paper and does not remain on the printing plate. At the end of a good day, Morgan will have something that moves her, that is right. “Working abstractly is a process of self-discovery; it is introspective and helps me connect with something mysterious deep inside, something spiritual. I never know what it will be, and that is the magic,” noted the artist. These pieces invite the viewer to experience the deep connections of form and color that emerged during the creative process. Morgan has loved art since a very young age – her mother, an artist, was her first teacher. Her degree is in Art History and she continues her studies locally and in San Miguel Allende. She exhibits with Art at the Source (first two weekends in June) and in local galleries. Meet the Artist: Morgan will be hosting the gallery Thursday, April 10 and Sunday, April 24, 2022, from 2:30 -6pm in addition to the April 3rd Reception (3-5pm).
