ALLY MORGAN, September featured artist in the Carriage House Gallery
September 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Ally Morgan is a visual artist and art instructor working at the Greenhouse Studio at Oatlands. She will be teaching students how to paint animals. In 2010 she received her BFA in painting from Salisbury University and she received her MFA in drawing and painting from Arizona State University in 2014.
Ally is a mixed media artist, mostly focusing on watercolors, pens, and colored pencils.
Inspired by the lectures of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, she endeavors to
explore the identity of the “Animal Other” as well as her own personal relationship with
them in her artwork. Derrida suggested that “the animal looks at us and we are naked
before it… thinking perhaps starts here.” This statement about seeing the animal and
the animal confronting and returning our gaze has continued to lead Ally’s artistic
investigation though out the years.
