The Morgan Gallery, at the KCC, is made possible through a generous donation by the Morgan Family of Kittery, ME. The gallery space is prominently located by the STAR THEATRE and provides a new venue for showcasing works by visual artists. The KCC Visual Arts Committee is responsible for curating the programming and schedules an ongoing series of art exhibits to showcase visual artists. Professional artists are encouraged to submit works for review for future exhibits. All works are reviewed and juried by a sub-committee of the Arts and Culture committee.
This gallery is free and open to the public during KCC business hours and also open during performances in the STAR Theatre. The Morgan Gallery is located in the Kittery Community Center at 120 Rogers Road in Kittery, Maine.
in slow mocean – A local lobstermen exhibit – Betsy Wish & various artists
The opening reception for “In Slow Mocean”, a multi media exhibit at the KCC Morgan Gallery, will take place on January 8, 2020 at 5:30PM.
The exhibit features local lobstermen, with photos taken of them at work from Betsy Wish’s kayak. Wish’s photographs, in conjunction with Jim White’s film, will introduce you to the men and women who share their person histories and insight into the lobster fishing industry.
Lobstering is the theme of works by local artists, photographers and sculptors that will be on display simultaneously in the KCC’s Morgan Gallery during this exhibition.
The film, “In Slow Mocean”, co produced by Wish (Good Eye Photo) and White (of Spruce Creek Video Productions) will be shown at the January 8th** reception at 7:00PM in the KCC’s STAR Theatre. (**This viewing is at capacity. We will be working on scheduling a 2nd viewing for a future date, stay tuned!)
Work on the theme of lobstering from students at Horace Mitchell Elementary School and Shapleigh Middle School will also be on display in the hallway.
