The Arts



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.

He also uses watercolors, colored pencils, charcoal, graphite, as well as, doing en plein air work. His raptors have been shown in a solo show at the Firehouse Gallery in Newburyport, MA, the Merrimac Public Library, 100 Market Street Gallery, Portsmouth, NH, Parker River Wildlife Center, and the SAA Gallery in Exeter. One of his paintings recently won the “Peoples Choice Award” at the Seacoast Art Association’s annual contest.

“I have always had a love of hawks, owls, and other raptors. For me, their beauty and regalness represent the best of nature. While others see their fierceness, I see their peace and feel a sense of presence.” – Jim Ryan
