Morgan Grigsby Exhibit
May - July
The three paintings on view— Bread of Heaven, A Place to Stand, and Sunday—are portraits created by artist Morgan Grigsby within the last year. One is a self-portrait, while the other two represent the artist’s father and mother respectively. Exhibited for the first time together as a group, the three large works draw attention to people and places that provide comfort in the artist’s life, inviting viewers to consider their own routines and surroundings in a similar way. According to Grigsby, “the paintings give the viewer an intimate perspective into my personal life, exploring ideas about social identity and alienation within contemporary Black and American culture.” Grigsby is a current Texas State University painting student.
