New Works by Caroline Morgan (Through May 31)
Experience new works by New York artist Caroline Morgan at the Rialto Theatre 8count Productions. Caroline Morgan grew up in Manalapan, New Jersey and she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Providence College in 2012. She is currently living and working in Albany, NY. Caroline has been successful in showing her work all the way from Tampa,FL to Victoria, BC. As she continues her travels, she finds new worlds to explore and recreate on canvas. Painting landscapes for Caroline is not just a way to show the world around her, but rather a method of interpreting the world. As she recalls her travels, she transforms images of the natural world into a new fragmented surface of abstract shapes, painterly colors and textures, and sudden or mysterious perspective breaks. Through out the years she has been experimenting with these new techniques and colors. Call 813.221.8808 for gallery hours. Rialto Theatre 8count Productions, 1617 North Franklin Street.
