Sharon R. Morgio displays paintings at HAL Presents

West Haven artist and longtime Hamden Art League member Sharon Rowley Morgio will be exhibiting her watercolors in the hallway of the Miller Memorial Library Senior Center from May 6-27, 2016. Sharon will be showing her paintings as part of the HAL Presents program, which showcases a different artist member each month from September through May.

The paintings on display are mostly inspired by nature, including several birds, florals and landscapes as well as a few architectural and figural pieces. Morgio has been painting in watercolor for the last ten years, enjoying the fluidity and layering possibilities of the medium as well as the immediacy of working in watercolor.

The artist is a member of the New Haven Paint & Clay Club, Connecticut Watercolor Society, Guilford Art League, Hamden Art League and the Arts Council of Greater New Haven. Sharon exhibits her work in venues throughout Connecticut.

The exhibition may be viewed at the Miller Library Senior Center, 2901 Dixwell Avenue in Hamden, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.

Great Exhibit Opportunity.

The Case Memorial Library in Orange, CT, second floor galleries, is available for artist exhibits in 2015.

Opening Reception, usually held on a Thursday afternoon from 5 - 7 pm.
Artists who have previously exhibited there can show again after four years.
