Press Release

Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present “With Reverence”, the debut solo exhibition of Melissa Morgan. This new series of portraits has an environmental inspiration, as the artist explains, “My latest body of work is a reflection of my concern about the decimation of the natural world and our precarious connection to it.” Utilizing expert and traditional painting skills, each portrait depicts the deep symbolism of our environmental impact through non-traditional surrealistic subject manner.  While somber in theme, the artist does not present the topic with catastrophic intention but “these pieces, while expressing my fears and concerns with the topic, also carry a message of hope for change.”

About the Artist

Melissa Morgan’s interest in creating art began while she was a child drawing alongside her father in New York.  This passion grew while studying graphic design at the New York Institute of Technology, and since then she has dedicated herself to the challenge of representing the intricacies of life with a wide variety of mediums.  Her work is on display at galleries in New Mexico and California, as well as her shop MeMe Boutique, in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, where she currently finds inspiration amongst the rolling hills of the Midwest.
