CraigMorgan_15 The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts presents a new exhibition, “Windswept, or Windfall: the paintings of Morgan Craig” beginning Monday, January 4 and continuing through February 19th, 2016.  The gallery reception will be held February 18th, 5-7 p.m., and coincides with our Third Thursday Open Studio event.

 

Philadelphia-based painter Morgan Craig’s dense compositions of architectural structures examine how societal identity is influenced and expressed through architectural edifices.  He states, “my work is not merely a method of documentation, but a sociopolitical commentary on the effects of hubris, avarice, free trade, outsourcing, deregulated capitalism, and technological obsolescence upon communities throughout the world.”

Craig was an artist-in-residence at KHN in 2014.  He has exhibited throughout the U.S.A., Canada, Europe, and Australia, including OK Harris in New York City, SPACES in Cleveland, the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts, and the Australian National University. Craig has received numerous awards including, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship. He has also been invited to several residencies including, Cite Internationale des Arts, the Macdowell Colony, Bemis Center for the Contemporary Arts, and Proekt Fabrika in Moscow, Russia.

 

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is located at 801 Third Corso in Nebraska City and is regularly open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m and for special events.  Both the exhibit and the reception are free, handicapped accessible, and open to the public of all ages.  KHN is a program of the Richard P. Kimmel and Laurine Kimmel Charitable Foundation, Inc.
