Works by Christine Morgan on Display in May

camtheartistDuring the month of May, the Stier Family Gallery at Thomas Memorial Library will feature a new collection of original abstract expressionistic sunset oil painting by Cape Elizabeth artist Christine Morgan. A graduate of UMass Dartmouth, with formal training in Fine Arts and Visual Arts, Christine believes “everyday life is a colorful palette, waiting to be expressed on canvas through expressionistic, bold brushstrokes.” Her paintings have been exhibited at a number of galleries in Maine, including the Lewis Gallery and Wing Spread Gallery in Northwest Harbor and Southwest Harbor, Roux and Cry International Fine Art Gallery in Portland, Maine, respectively. One of Christine’s favorite activities is going on beach walks in Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough at sunset with her husband and two, 2 years old miniature American Eskimo puppies. Of late, she has delighted in immortalizing her love of Maine’s beaches in abstract seascapes painted with oils on wood panel and canvas with wonderful texture. The exhibit can be seen from May 1st – 31st. A reception, open to the public, will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, 2016. All works are for sale.
