Brick Walk Fine Art is pleased to announce our next exhibition which features selected works by Ken Morgan. 

This exhibition will revisit drawings on canvas and paper that reference the unusual childhood of the artist as he was part of a Connecticut-based family of circus acrobats that performed across the country. Morgan attended the Vesper George School of Art in Boston. He later moved to Charleston, Maine for several years, where he lived in a grange hall that he bought and restored before returning to Connecticut where he currently resides.

Among his recognitions are grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Adolph Gottlieb Foundation. His work is in many fine private and public collections including the State of Connecticut Artists Collection.

OPENING RECEPTION | Friday, January 19, 5:30 - 8:00pm | FREE

Color can change a viewer's perception of practically anything. It impacts emotion, context, narrative, and one's personal psychological response. This juried exhibition explores not just the colors in artwork, but the entire color palette used to accentuate the concept of the work. In focusing on one specific element of design, Arbitrary Color challenges the artist in their execution of all principles and elements of art design.

Distortions, Falsehoods, and Double-meanings
What happens when truthful information is altered by the omission of part of the message? What happens for example when a comma is removed from a sentence, or an implication inserted, and therefore the interpretation of an entire otherwise truthful statement is changed? A half-truth is the result, often intended to make what is only a belief appear to be knowledge. Half-truths mislead through the use of truth as a decoy within which rides an intended deception.
For this exhibit Manifest is very interested in how works of visual art explore the concept of half-truth. Works submitted may be of any kind and any size, exploring the general theme in any way and through various strategies.

This theme is very open to interpretation and to any and all visual arts media.
Submission deadline: November 21, 2016
