Dorothy Morgan (b. 1951) is a mid-career artist who is considered one of the midwest's finest and most accomplished painters. She began showing with John Pence in 1987 and has staged four solo exhibitions in San Francisco.
Morgan's paintings have been acquired for numerous public collections in New York, San Francisco, Texas, and Minnesota to name just a few. She has won a number of prizes and awards and came to our attention in 1987 as a major prize winner in American Artist Magazine's "Golden Anniversary Competition." Her work is currently on tour with the Tacoma Art Museum's "Lewis and Clark Territory" exhibition.
Morgan paints on panel with thick, luscious impasto. She devotes herself to painting the environment surrounding her home: the South Dakota landscape, excelling at the use of light and strong composition. Her paintings are unmistakably distinctive. Prices range from $3,200 to $16,500 depending upon size and complexity.
