Collection: Morgan, James

Roaming the canyons and fields around the small central Utah town where he grew up gave James Morgan an appreciation of nature’s wonders. He learned to see not only the larger vista but also the resident wildlife and intimate aspects of the area. He now lives in northern Utah, where inspiration is just out the back door.

“Nature’s ever-changing moods are a wellspring of inspiration. The excitement for me is constantly exploring new ways to interpret nature. I am convinced that no one can improve on natural compositions, when they can be isolated. Rhythms too, can be magical if you can isolate them, and that gets easier with experience. It comes from trusting your own vision. It is the way you look at things and see something lyrical or harmonious. I am intrigued by the patterns and shapes found in nature and concentrate on the effects of light on these elements and the resulting array of colors.

Morgan has been honored with the Autry National Center James R. Parks Trustee Purchase Award in 2014 and a Steamboat Art Museum retrospective exhibition in 2019, among other honors. He is a member of the National Academy of Western Art, Northwest Rendezvous Group, Society of Animal Artists, and Plein Air Painters of America. His work appears in many private and public collectionsand is represented by Wood River Fine Arts, Simpson-Gallagher Gallery, Trailside Gallery, Gerald Peters Gallery, Gallery 1261, Claggett/Rey Gallery, and InSight Gallery.
