Creating a Cohesive Body of Work – for the holiday show: Tuesday, August 4 at 1 pm

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside the mind of a Curator?  How can you understand their perspective and needs related to being entered in to shows, getting on the gallery walls, or being showcased. Morean Arts Center Curator Amanda Cooper will be focused on the Annual Member Holiday Show, but her tips and guidelines will help you to get inside the mind of anyone you are approaching with a body of your work. Please pre-register with  FREE but limited to Morean Arts Center Members.

I’ve been framed!  Have you been well framed? Tuesday, August 25 at 1 pm

Join Morean Arts Center Board Member and acclaimed painter Richard Seidel – Choosing a frame that complements your work is its own art form. Use the photography tips you picked up from Beth Reynolds and bring along your most vexing framing challenge.  Please pre-register with  FREE but limited to Morean Arts Center Members.  Get a FREE gift from My Favorite Art Place when you pre-register and save on your framing thru the month of August! 


Understanding Resolution, Sizing and Pixels: Tuesday September 15 at 1pm

Every call for entry has a different set of guidelines for sizing your art.  Join Beth Reynolds for this lively discussion that will eliminate your digital headaches. How do you change the pixels without changing the resolution? What is the difference between file size and image size? We will try to answer all your questions and explain digital sizes, vocabulary and more. Please pre-register with  FREE but limited to Morean Arts Center Members.

Exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center

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 artwork 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.
