Kay Mor­gan at Bay Gallery

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - By KRIS DANDO

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.
