Windswept, or Windfall
The Paintings of Morgan Craig
Gallery Reception: Thursday, February 18th, 5 to 7 p.m.
On view: January 4th through February 19, 2016
The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is proud to present an exhibition by Philadelphia-based painter Morgan Craig. "Windswept, or Windfall" features dense compositions of architectural structures that examine how societal identity is influenced and expressed through architectural edifices. Craig 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.
Please join us for a reception with the artist on Thursday, February 18th from 5 – 7 pm.
