ROOM FOR MEMORY
November 22 - January 5

Artist Opening Reception: Friday, November 22. 5-8pm.
Featuring a music performance by artist Heather Morgan's band, Lovesick at 7pm.
Free and open to the public.
Additional reception during Art 'Round Town on Friday, December 6. 5-8pm.

Heather Morgan’s oil paintings depict figures (mostly women) that are performing their identities. It is a tense and fevered display, aching with self-consciousness. The possibilities for self-creation are illustrated in a succession of vivid characters based on the artist and her acquaintances.

Vivid and theatrical as these images are, the viewer is thrust into discomfiting intimacy with these defiant characters. These works invite the viewer to look and to covet, presenting an alluring world that is also potent and seething. Beauty quivers with pain and flaw in the distorted, luminous subjects that populate Morgan's paintings. These unflinching yet vulnerable pastel heroines become all the more unknowable, as they reveal themselves in their fractured splendor. Learn more...

ROOMS:

At 3S Artspace, we are always looking for ways to honor the artists we present and offer new ways for the public to experience and appreciate art.

For the Room for Memory exhibit, selected creative teams will build supplemental installation "rooms," transforming the Gallery space housing Heather Morgan's exhibit. Each room will have a different wintry theme. Visitors in need of respite are invited to take a load off and hang out in these spaces to view Morgan's work, reflect, and share in the merriment of the season.
