Linda Fantuzzo: Penumbra

Charleston, South Carolina, artist Linda Fantuzzo began painting at age twelve. She studied painting and graphics at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia from 1968 to 1973 before moving to Charleston, where she set up a studio in 1974. She was influenced to do so by fellow graduate student Manning Williams, a native Charlestonian who was already an established artist there, and his wife, journalist Barbara S. Williams. (Manning Williams’s masterpiece Jack Island Trials will be the subject of an exhibition at the Morris beginning November 4.)

Philip Morsberger 2021 Exibit

Exhibit Dates: September 16, 2021 – October 30, 2021  | Gallery: Hampton III Gallery

In January 1997, when a small exhibit of his “Augusta” abstract paintings was presented at the Morris Museum, Morsberger stated that his work is always in transition.

   “It is plunging forward into an ever greater Unknown, and, prayerfully, I am hanging on for dear life. It is quite a ride, and I am grateful to be taking it.”
