The Swan Coach House Gallery and The Forward Arts Foundation are pleased to present the work of Morgan Alexander, winner of the 2013-2014 Emerging Artist Award. Also presented are works by the four finalists. The Awards are given annually by the Forward Arts Foundation to the candidates recognized as the most dynamic emerging artists in the Atlanta area. The title of Alexander’s debut solo exhibition, “remembering, forgetting, and remembering again,” contemplates ideas of impermanence, memory, and the passage of time. His delicate installations of collected materials and gauzy constructed ‘drawings’ evoke a quiet sense of place and the search for beauty in ordinary things. Employing an ethereal vocabulary and limited color palette, he incorporates natural found materials along with lead, steel, glass, salt, wax, and paper collage elements. The works on view explore intersections between the physical body and the soul, and the interconnections between ourselves and the world around us.
This exhibition is sponsored by Mickie Keough and Eileen Millard
