Atlantic Beach resident Bunny Morgan opened her exhibit of Watercolors on November 18th at the Archway Gallery in Atlantic Beach. Opening reception was held during North Beaches Art Walk on Thursday, November 18th.
Mrs. Morgan received her BA from Michigan State University and began a twelve-year career teaching art in Michigan, Guam, Cambridge, and Jacksonville. Loren Wilford introduced her to watercolors at the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota. Her paintings have been exhibited in the Florida National Bank, in the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church for the Riverside Art Association, and in several juried shows for the Jacksonville Watercolor Association. A sketchbook called “Tag Along” has been published containing many of her paintings of Native American sites.
ARTIST STATEMENT: “I really like painting outside where I can observe nature. In Michigan where I grew up, we spent many summers vacationing in northern lakes, picking berries in the forest or roaming the woods at my grandfather’s farm. There is so much to paint in Florida and the weather is so great it makes the colors just sing in the sunlight. Watercolor is fluid and easy to carry outside. My subject matter is usually scenes from our local parks or Mayport. I do not attempt to make photographic representations but interpretive, paintings interesting to see. I use a variety of approaches.”
