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.

Current exhibit

“Light, Reflections, and Cast Shadows” 

A Ken Fellows Exhibit

Showing October – December 2018

Opening Reception – Wednesday, October 3rd – 5:30-7:00pm

“Light, Reflections, and Cast Shadows” is an exhibit of watercolor work by artist, Ken Fellows.  

Ken Fellows started drawing and painting 25 years ago to have something to do in his retirement from academic medicine. From still life to Maine landscapes, portraits of his granddaughter to interior scenes, he paints what captures his attention. He paints old magazine covers, postcards and even dated seed catalogs.

“Painting is pure pleasure for me, and that’s my incentive. I have no website: painting is not a business for me. There’s no message in my work. I love the things I paint and try to make each painting personally satisfying, while hoping it may be interesting or pleasurable to others as well.” – Ken Fellows
