Fine Arts Presentation: Kevin Morrissey


Fine Arts Alumni Presentation

Kevin Morrissey

Class of 2003

Wednesday, March 11, 8 p.m. / Rutledge 119


Kevin Morrissey graduated with a B.F.A. from Winthrop in 2003. He has taught art classes for both MonArts and Queens University Summer Camp in Charlotte, N.C., as well as the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, S.C. Morrissey’s paintings are a reaction to growing up in the South. He uses Southern iconography to tell partial stories of hope and fear, reflecting upon both his own identity and the changes in his Southern home. The surface preparation and backgrounds of his work are constructed and deconstructed to resemble the remnants of an agricultural and industrial presence in the South. Morrissey is currently a visual art educator at Rollings Middle School of the Arts in Dorchester County, S.C.
