Kay Morgan at Bay Gallery
Plimmerton’s Bay Gallery is displaying work from Camborne artist Kay Marie Morgan, who specialises in watercolours of local scenes.
Nineteen pieces are up for viewing during the next two weekends, or by appointment during the week.
The exhibition, Mostly Water Colours, is the culmination of a year’s work and shows off the Inlet, sea, cafes and community, Ms Morgan says.
Each piece comes with a short narrative, giving the viewer an idea what she was feeling at that time. Although she is a confident, largely self-taught artist, having the whole gallery to herself is still a new experience.
‘‘I have showed some of my work in a cafe before, and have sold to private collectors and art auctions, this is my first solo exhibition. It is nerve-racking, but I’m looking forward to it.’’
While most works are watercolour, there are pastel and acrylic works as well. Watercolour ‘‘ captures the atmosphere’’ best, Ms Morgan says.
‘‘My work is expressive, it’s a way of communicating. Art should speak to us in some way.’’
Bay Gallery owner Daphne Brennan says Ms Morgan’s work has a ‘‘beautiful presence’’ and the exhibition will likely be a popular one.
