After just a few short weeks of reaching out to the Rochester community Rochester Art Collectors recently achieved a membership milestone when Morgan signed up on March 13th and became of our 100th member.
Morgan found out about Rochester Art Collectors when she was tagged in a Facebook post on our page by a friend who knew she'd be interested in the group.
We asked Morgan to describe herself and this is what she wrote...
Hi! I’m Morgan.
This picture collage pretty much sums up what I do and what I enjoy.
I moved to Rochester about 11 years ago after traveling around Upstate NY, California and Delaware. I have a degree in Art Therapy and Baking and Pastry Arts. I currently find myself teaching bread production. When I'm not at work you can find me hiking in our local parks, taking waaaayy too many pictures, writing, creating, and generally having a good time…otherwise, I’m volunteering and trying to hone my sarcasm and wit.
I think art is a constant companion in my life. I don’t have one particular medium or genre that speaks to me. I feel that art is mood altering and depending on the mood the artwork can speak to you in a myriad of ways. From traveling, I’ve been fortunate to find that no matter the city or town I find myself in, there is beauty in one way, shape or form. That beauty is at time found on city walls or quiet galleries. I look forward to seeing and speaking about our local art scene of which I could stand to know more about.
When I walk these cities streets I’m always grateful to have landed here in the city of Rochester. Rochester is abundant with 4 necessities I require: Good People, Good Food/Cocktails, The Arts, and Good Parks.
I am the proud owner of an ink painting by Jason Dorofy (@dorofyink & designbydorofy.com) as well multiple ceramic pieces by Earl Jacobson, and copper fired artwork by Painting with Fire. I also own some of Linda Connor Cass' (@loudeesjewelry & etsy.com/shop/Loudees) work, some beautiful glass flowers from More Fire Studio (@morefireglassstudio & morefireglass.com) and I own a number of prints purchased at the Cornhill Arts Festival from Eric Dorris Designs (@ericdorrisdesigns & ericdorrisdesigns.com).
