Artist in Focus: Jeromy Morris

Jeromy Morris is not only the curator of the Cider Gallery and the director at SeedCo Studios, he is also a mixed media artist living and working in Lawrence, KS.

Jeromy Morris was born in Denver, CO and he received his Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications and Graphic Design from the University of Kansas. Since that time, he has co-founded the Fresh Produce Art Collective, is the Director at SeedCo Studios (a venue that merges art and music which was founded by the Fresh Produce Art Collective) and is our very own curator here at the Cider Gallery.

Morris has shown in a variety of galleries and special exhibitions, such as the show: “More Than Meets the Eye,” a collaboration with John Sebelius at the Cider Gallery in 2014. Most recently, he is participating in the current exhibition at the Cider Gallery, “Re: Solution,” with fellow Fresh Produce Art Collective artists: Jeremy Rockwell, Erok Johanssen, and Yuri Zupancic.

His artwork, which has been featured in numerous private collections, emphasizes the relationship between two or more disparate mediums. In this way, Morris finds inspiration through his exploration of multiple mediums that are continually infused with movement and emotion. This tendency toward movement is especially obvious in his video art and installation pieces. Despite this, he is most known for his two-dimensional works on panels. These two-dimensional works often emphasize mood and the recollection of memory. They are a motley of various materials. Epoxy, acrylic, toner transfers, spray paint, and found objects vie for space on found-wood pieces or panels. Morris’ works are primarily inspired by the interactions between opposing forces; consumerism and advertising are pitted against urban ruins and the forces that exist between nature and industry.

Troy Moth

Not sure exactly what draws me to nature, but the draw is strong. I’m my happiest and calmest when in it. And my worst when away from it. I’m my most creative when simply out for a walk in the forest.

Thank you to everyone who came by this past weekend for Final Fridays! We were extremely happy with the turnout and so excited to continue to have this show up until the end of November.

All of the photographs in the gallery can be purchased in three sizes: 16"x24", 24"x36" and "40x"60".

Cider Gallery. Tuesday-Friday. 1-5pm. 810 Pennsylvania.

The work above is 'Buffalo 01' by Troy Moth.

Fragments// Susan Grace & Kyle Batson

One of our favorite aspects of this month's show is the unique way Susan Grace's paintings and Kyle Batson's photography compliment one another. Both artists have successfully captured fragments of everyday life, from images of ordinary places to capturing moments of human interaction. There are many connections that can be made while viewing the entire show. Although they differ in subject matter the connection of color and line allow these two works to be uniquely cohesive. Kyle Batson's photo on the left is titled Santa Carne (Holly Flesh) and Susan Grace's painting on the right is titled Watermark #1.

Stop by the Cider Gallery Tuesday-Friday, 1-5pm. This show will be up all October long.

 

 

Goodbyes and Hellos

The end of September is full of goodbyes and hellos as we say goodbye to the summer heat and Jen Unekis’ Playing with Pauses this week. Stop by today during our gallery hours to see this incredible body work one last time.

Join us next week, during Final Fridays, to say hello to our next show Fragments: Works by Susan Grace and Kyle Batson. As the month comes to a close we are also eager (and a little bit impatient) to welcome the crisp fall air and East Lawrence's new neighborhood cafe Bon Bon.
