Rumford, RI, October 28, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Few occupations welcome viewers to visit their workspace or watch them work, but opening one’s studio allows artists to break down barriers and welcomes the public into the sometimes monastic world of an artist. For abstract artist Alexander Morris, hosting an open studio event is an exciting prospect to offer existing and new collectors a peek into his past and current work.
“Abstract painting is, in many ways, similar to music: its movements are lyrical, its themes are wide-sweeping. My intent is to invite the viewer to listen to those beats and rhythms they feel as they see my work - connecting them to something greater than themselves,” Morris says. Hosting an open studio provides an alternative opportunity for art lovers to experience this connection and interact with the artist on a one-to-one basis.
Morris’s studio, located in Rumford, Rhode Island, will be open to the public on Saturday, November 14, 2020, from 9am-noon. Sizes of available artwork vary and range from quite large (up to 5'x6') to small (4"x4"). Morris's website will have a specific link listing the work that will be available at the open studio (including some new pieces created specially for this event) as a way for non-local parties to view and purchase his work. The link will be active until the end of the year, though artwork will be able to purchase at any time, dependent upon availability. Contact Mr. Morris (above) for more information on this event, purchasing information, or his artwork and process in general.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in compliance with local mandates, masks must be worn and social distancing will be practiced.
Alexander Morris has a robust exhibition history at various galleries and museums on the west and east coasts, and has taken part in regular exhibits and invitationals at the highly-regarded Springville Museum of Fine Art in Utah. In addition, his work is featured in private and corporate collections in the US and UK. Mr. Morris is the recipient of awards and honors and was voted "Best on the Rise Abstractionist" by City Weekly.
Born in Utah, Mr. Morris received a BFA from the University of Utah. He currently lives and works in New England.
