Rebecca Morgan: No Church in the Wild- Visiting Artist Lecture

Presented by York College of PA at York College: DeMeester Recital Hall at Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall, York PA

Feb 25 2016
Rebecca Morgan: No Church in the Wild- Visiting Artist Lecture

Rebecca Morgan is an artist from our own Central Pa region!  Her paintings, drawings, and ceramics emanate from stereotypes of rural Appalachia.  Humorous, benevolent, and savage at turns, her characters touch on truths about poverty, addiction, and off-the-grid living, as well as idealizations of uncultured country life.

Morgan embraces very detailed naturalism, influenced by Dutch painters such as Memling, Brueghel and Van Eyck.  She also grips the absurd, repulsive caricatures suggestive of underground cartoonists like R. Crumb.  Being an on-and-off-again New Yorker, Morgan represents the ultimate insider/outsider point of view, embracing and critically distancing herself from her origins.

Morgan is a graduate of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and got her M.F.A from Pratt Institute, NY.

Exhibitions include: Gasser Grunert Gallery, NY; Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; Montclair State University, Montclair, NJ; Whitdel Arts, Detroit, MI; Coop Gallery, Nashville, TN; and Spring Break, NY. Morgan is represented by Asya Geisberg Gallery in NY.

Join us in DeMeester Recital Hall on February 25, 2016 at 5:30pm.  Prior to the lecture there will be a reception at 5:00pm in Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall Lobby.
