Brick Walk Fine Art is pleased to announce our next exhibition which features selected works by Ken Morgan. This exhibition will revisit drawings on canvas and paper that reference the unusual childhood of the artist as he was part of a Connecticut-based family of circus acrobats that performed across the country. Morgan attended the Vesper George School of Art in Boston. He later moved to Charleston, Maine for several years, where he lived in a grange hall that he bought and restored before returning to Connecticut where he currently resides. Among his recognitions are grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Adolph Gottlieb Foundation. His work is in many fine private and public collections including the State of Connecticut Artists Collection.

Drawing inspiration from travel and landscapes, Cardinal Points features abstract oil paintings by Hartford-based artist Lindsey Fyfe. The exhibit explores aspects of the natural world from weather patterns and tectonic shifts to fields in bloom. Lindsey is one of the Greater Hartford Arts Council’s 2016 Featured Artists for the United Arts Campaign.

"Cardinal Points elicits a clear visual of a compass moving in different directions, or of one finding one’s bearings. I want my viewers to be in a mindset of movement and wanderlust as they experience my work, but I also hope that they will settle in and find their bearings within my canvases." - Lindsey Fyfe Read our interview with Lindsey on the blog.
