Alumna Morgan Dyer (’13) Opens Solo Show at Blochaus Gallery

August 3, 2023

Montserrat alumna Morgan Dyer has a new solo show! Meeting the Edge is opening this Friday, August 4th at Blochaus Art Gallery in Newburyport.

Per Dyer:
“From August 4 – October 1, Blochaus Art Gallery is showcasing the first iteration of a project idea that’s been ruminating in my mind for over 3 years. This new body of work is specifically tied to the Newburyport landscape where I dragged large pieces of canvas to three different locations and created a painting on site. Each piece was made abutting a body of water and wedged onto different surfaces, leaving unique marks that speak directly to the locations. Adam Mikaelian and I filmed and directed two short videos guiding the viewer into the intimate process that brings each painting to life.

“The exhibit will showcase these paintings through video, draped three dimensionally, stretched and reworked or put into new and exclusive print images. There’s something for everyone to see. I can’t wait to share these new works with you!”

The reception for Dyer’s show will take place on Friday, August 4th from 5-9 at 74 Water St. Suite 200 in Newburyport. Anyone else interested in seeing Dyer or some of her work can drop by her studio at 65 Bearskin Neck, Rockport. The gallery space there is open Thurs-Sun from 11-6.
