Highpoint Editions is pleased to release two beautiful new suites by Clarence Morgan. Each suite is comprised of three prints which are also available for sale individually. These new works use screen-printing and lithography to play with color, line, and atmospheric surface qualities. The diminutive images emphasize surface over form in an unusually delicate presentation, and are consistent with Morgan’s signature decorative modernism.
Clarence Morgan’s artistic accomplishments are extensive and varied. Among these achievements are an MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; grants from the McKnight, Jerome, and Bush Foundations, and the National Endowment for the Arts; and inclusion of his art in museum, corporate, and private collections worldwide. His exhibition record includes more than 150 shows to date at venues such as Thomas Barry Fine Arts, International Print Center (New York), The Walker Art Center, The Armory Show (New York), and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum. Morgan has been a faculty member at the University of Minnesota for over two decades, serving as Chair of the Department of Art from 2004 – 2010.
