Southport Galleries is delighted to welcome, Brechin Morgan as our featured artist for our early summer exhibition, “Voyages & Vistas: Southport to Sri Lanka.” Brec’s artistic vision is inspired by his unique, nearly 5-year journey circumnavigating the globe aboard the 27-foot sailing vessel, Otter. During his solo voyage he sketched and water-colored sunrises and sunsets, ports and ship industry–selling his works along the way to finance his incredible journey. Brec’s compilation of his emailed reports, “We’re All On the Journey” shares the trip’s first year–available in a Kindle edition for the armchair sailor. Brec now finds inspiration in our local waters from his studio in Bridgeport and spent much of this spring painting Southport’s unparalleled harbor vistas. His canvas, “Blessing of the Fleet” will be the featured image to promote the village’s annual Blessing of the Fleet Parade on Saturday, June 24th.
Join us May 11th from 5 to 8 p.m. to meet this accomplished artist, navigator and local legend.
