"Paradigm Shift Paintings by Margaret Morrison" Exhibition at Lyndon House Arts Center
Thursday, June 8, 2023
The Lyndon House Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening of Paradigm Shift: Paintings by Margaret Morrison, on June 8, 2023. This exhibition is on view through September 1, 2023. The reception is Thursday, June 8, 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
In 2017, Professor Margaret Morrison received a grant for the project, Contemporary Examination of Caravaggio’s Dramatic Staging and Lighting - A Collaboration between Painting and Theatre. This project resulted in a series of paintings investigating Caravaggio’s use of theatrical light which will be on display in the South Gallery at Lyndon House Arts Center.
Morrison and her collaborator, Professor Anthony Marotta of the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies, explored various methods of stage choreography for the purpose of photographing and collecting reference images for the painted works. After discussion as to how to include theater students in the project, Morrison created a script for Marotta and his students. This resulted in an stage performance directed by Marotta and documented by photographer, Gabrielle Rosenthal. The resulting collaboration provided Margaret Morrison with exceptional reference material for this new body of work entitled, Paradigm Shift. This suite of seven large oil paintings on canvas describes various stages of enlightenment from an awakening to transcendence.
A special gallery event for Paradigm Shift will be held on Thursday, August 24 at 6:00 pm.
All exhibitions are free of charge and open to the public. Exhibitions are on view during regular gallery hours Tuesday and Thursday 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
