Denise Bibro Fine Art

Danny Morgan, Brightness Dancing , 2013

Acrylic on Canvas, 16.75 x 21 inches

DENISE BIBRO FINE ART is pleased to announce an exhibition of Danny Morgan’s paintings, Symbiotic: Form & Color, in its Gallery II space, September 6 – October 6, 2018.

Morgan, originally from Kentucky, has spent most of his life in Cincinnati and Florida as a successful artist and musician. Prior to becoming a professional at both; he received a degree for art at Kentucky University and subsequently taught art. His calling for music and art beckoned him to create his own unique and individual path. After having his own successful band and playing with the infamous Beach Boys he settled his roots in Sanibel, Florida.

Danny Morgan’s work is full of cords of color, like the music he loves and plays. He is inspired by the beat and temper of music as well as the nature that surrounds him. His palette is primarily light and airy. His compositions are often comprised of juxtapositioned areas of color. The nuances and trajectory of his compositions are refined by various stylized brush strokes. All of his works resonate a fine sense of place, time and experience.

Morgan’s mission is not to dictate the meaning of the chords in his compositions, but is to create a colorful, visceral scored experience for the viewer. His paintings depict transitional space between music and color coming together into visual form. The viewer interprets his or her own intellectual, emotional, and visceral response to each work.

This will be Danny Morgan’s third solo exhibition at Denise Bibro Fine Art. He has had several shows in Florida and most recently had a one man show at the Indian Hill Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. He has also taught Fine Arts in Ohio.


 
 

Don Perlis: Me Too

September 6 - October 6, 2018
Opens Thursday, September 6, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Denise Bibro Fine Art

Don Perlis, Sphinx, 2017

Oil on canvas, 21 x 26.5 inches

DENISE BIBRO FINE ART is pleased to announce the sixth exhibition of Don Perlis with the 2018-9 season: ME TOO, Recent Paintings, September 6th – October 6th, 2018.

In many crossroads in our history, artists have played an important, integral role in provoking audiences to review, discuss and act on current state of affairs; our government and our social mores. This exhibition is Perlis’ pictorial commentary on today’s political and social environment and its pundits. As in the past there have been times that require thought and action. These are one of those times.

Don Perlis’ recent paintings of super heroes both from the ordinary to the sublime, Trump antics and common everyday buffoons provoke the viewer to ponder our current state of affairs. Including what some people idealize and what is daunted in Social Media. Scenes reflect disparate worlds of have and have nots, the sublime vs. the vulgar, the fantastical to the ordinary. The area of Time Square is one of its’ stages which is recognized as “so New York, so American.” These beautifully rendered paintings depict vignettes that reflect a world that is colorful, bombastic, full of both promise and despair. Perlis pushes the dialogue button. It’s arts way to preserve the right for the democratic values of discourse.

Perlis has had numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has exhibited at the Lancaster Museum of Art, PA, the Heckscher Museum of Art, NY, and the Hoyt Center for the Arts, Newcastle, PA. Among the many institutions he has exhibited are the Whitney Museum of American Art and National Academy of Design in New York, where he is a member and others. His works are in numerous private and public collections including the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the Kingsborough Community College, NY, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, MN, and the Colby Museum of Art, ME to name a few. He has had received various fellowships and honors, and has been published in The New York Times, Art in America, the New York Magazine, and others.
