The annual members show is kind of a big deal at the Morean, who depends heavily on its members for all kinds of support.
“I love seeing how excited our members are at the opening, when they see their work hanging on wall in the gallery. For some, this is their very first gallery exhibition. I love the democratic feeling of the show. Our members range from professional, nationally-recognized artists, to first-timers, and they all hang together in the same gallery. It's pretty exciting to see the range of artistic talent that we have in our area," curator Amanda Cooper says.
