Third Place Art Prize Awarded to Alexander Morris

Notice of art prize given to artist at a local exhibition.

Rumford, RI, November 23, 2022 --( In his series "Of Ocean and Sky" Alexander Morris created paintings that "span the deepest depths of the ocean to the vault of the heavens." The rich swathes of blues with hints of green and gray transport the viewer to above and below the ocean’s surface.

From this series, the painting "Of Ocean and Sky No. 2" was juried (and awarded) into the dual show entitled Below the Surface / Synergy II. These exhibits explore life conditions above and below the ocean.

The Below the Surface exhibit was put on by the Art League RI (Rhode Island). At the show’s opening reception, Morris learned he won Third Place for "Of Ocean and Sky No. 2." He said he felt "validated and proud that the jurors enjoyed my work so much." The show (and awards) was juried by Michael Rose, Heather E. Stivison, and Steven Pennell, with awards given out by Art League RI.

After the show closed, it was transferred to University of Rhode Island and curated alongside artwork from the university community’s artists and scientists.

Both exhibits have since closed but the award-winning artwork can be viewed at with other paintings of the ‘Of Ocean and Sky’ series. For more information, please contact Mr. Morris at 401.408.6087 or

Alexander Morris has a robust exhibition history at various galleries and exhibition spaces, including AS220’s main gallery (RI), a featured artist of Attleboro Arts Museum’s prestigious 8 Vision exhibition (MA), and has been invited to exhibit on both east and west coasts.
