Featuring Morgan Seemann, Best of Show at the Emerging Artists Exhibition 2019: Between Spaces

Morgan Seemann was the celebrated winner of the Best of Show at the ArtHaus 2019 Emerging Artist Exhibition. She returns with a solo show of multiple media, of which include oil painting, charcoal, printmaking and more. Ranging from figurative storytelling to unconventional portraiture, “Between Spaces” carefully balances beauty and distortion through a narrative of identity and self-perception.  Time of the reception has changed to 7:30-9:30.
