Artist's Talk and Exhibit Reception:

Clarence Morgan's paintings, drawings and prints reflect a sophisticated understanding of abstraction and composition. His vocabulary of marks ranges from invented shapes to organic forms, which he uses to create layers of lyrical networks and dense patterns. Morgan's deep engagement with the act of drawing leads him to approach each work intuitively, inviting the viewer to follow his process. Clarence Morgan has received fellowships and grants from the Jerome Foundation, Bush Foundation, Southern Arts Federation, McKnight Foundation, Minnesota State Arts Board, North Carolina Arts Council and Art Matters, Inc. Morgan's prints, paintings and works on paper can be found in the collections of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts, Asheville Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art and Weisman Museum of Art as well as many private collections throughout the United Sates. Clarence Morgan resides in Minneapolis, MN where he maintains a studio and is a Professor of Art at the University of Minnesota.
