Exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center
The exhibitions department is responsible for the programming of the Morean’s galleries. The Morean’s exhibitions serve as a portal through which members of our community are introduced to contemporary art that is socially and culturally relevant, accessible, dynamic, and educational and at times challenging and provoking. Our department arranges exhibitions of work in all media by a broad spectrum of artists, including those who are emerging, mid-career, and established, as well as work by children. We put on over 30 exhibitions each year, with each exhibition running from 4 to 7 weeks.

The Morean Arts Center is not only interested in the meaning of contemporary art, but also in educating our visitors on how art is made. Often our exhibitions will feature process areas where an artist reveals his or her working philosophy, even showing step-by-step progressions of artwork at times. We seek to connect people with our exhibiting artists, so that our community feels an affinity with the artists whose work is on display, and a personal connection with the art work itself.

We also work with the Morean’s education department to offer additional programming that enriches the viewer’s experience with our exhibitions. These may include gallery talks, panel discussions, special tours, master artist workshops, and hands-on activities for children. We welcome artists’ programming ideas, as well.

Most of the works in our exhibitions are for sale, with proceeds going to the exhibiting artists and to the programs at the Morean Arts Center.
