Jenny Morgan "The Golden Hour" @ Plus Gallery, DenverJuxtapoz // Friday, 12 Sep 2014
As you have probably seen by now, our September 2014 issue featured cover artwork by Brooklyn-based painter, Jenny Morgan. All summer, we feel like we have been getting to know Morgan, and now as the summer comes to a close, she opened a solo show, "The Golden Hour," at Plus Gallery in Denver on September 11, 2014. The show marks her fifth solo show at Plus Gallery.
From the gallery....
Plus Gallery opens the Fall exhibition season with “The Golden Hour,” the fifth solo exhibition by our most celebrated and collected painter Jenny Morgan. Morgan’s latest is not just one of the most anticipated exhibitions for Plus Gallery, but one of the most significant for Denver’s contemporary art community, marking the first time an artist from within has risen to national prominence via the NYC scene yet continues to maintain a strong presence in Colorado, where her collector base has always been a significant part of her career. The exhibition coincides with a pulsing surge of energy for Morgan, well beyond previous “peaks” that have been a constant companion throughout the first decade of her career. Morgan begins the fall with no less than four exhibitions commencing within the first two weeks of September, including a second solo offering at Purdue University Galleries (comprised of previously exhibited works by the artist); several paintings in her first group exhibition within the museum context, the Museum Of Contemporary Art Jacksonville‘s “Great Real: New American Painting,” as well as inclusion with a single work in an established NYC venue group exhibition.
