The Moon Gallery at Berry College in Rome, Georgia recently opened an art exhibit of work from artist Morgan Alexander titled “...between the sea and the sky.” 

Alexander is a winner of the Forward Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award and a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work has been showcased around the United States, gaining him a following as an up-and-coming artist.

Stylistically, Alexander has earned a name for himself with art created of found objects for works that have been described as earthy and desolate.

“Impermanence, interconnection, and the passage of time are common themes,” Alexander, a Georgia native, said. “Making is a process of thinking aloud, of casting out questions and listening for answers that may never be provided. Alchemy, nature, language, tradition, and ritual provide a framework for these conversations.”

Alexander’s exhibition at Berry College is made up of items he sees as discarded or overlooked. With those things he’s created sculptures, paintings and drawings to turn those materials into something new and with purpose.

The exhibit is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Feb. 4.
