The Morgan Gallery of Fine Arts is located on Route 940,in Blakeslee Pa, just minutes away from Pocono Pines. The Morgan Gallery of Fine Arts is the oldest art gallery in the Pocono's and hosts an incredible variety of artists and art styles.
Gallery director James Morgan is an artist himself. Mr. Morgan is quite talented with the camera and has mastered the art of capturing the perfect landscape portrait.
The gallery also is host to the watercolor paintings of Ed Havas; an artist from Bethlehem, Pa. Morgan refers to Ed Havas as a true master and considers his works to be one of his best sellers.
Besides being a very talented photographer Mr. Morgan is a very accomplished framer. Some of his clients come from as far away as Virginia to have their work framed, but that's not Morgan's vision for the gallery. Morgan true desire is to promote new talent as well as to continue representing the seasoned master as he has throughout the past 20 years.
There is of course no visit to the gallery without spending a few minutes visiting with Mr. Morgan's pug Bella. Bella can be best described as the head dog in charge, sitting on her arm chair as still as if she were a piece or artwork herself.
Also seen through out the galley is the colorful hand painted furniture of Wendy Glassman. Wendy's fine art work combines a mixture of shapes and colorful media to create one of a kind tables, end tables, trucks, benches and cabinets.
I fell in love with the work of two artists in particular. First are the sculptures created by Robert Bergstrasser of Wilkes-Barre. This amazing artist is just as comfortable creating perfect marble sculptures, as he is creating the numerous clay images known as the "Sinister". My second favorite is the farm life paintings of Cheryl Korb. I couldn't resist and purchased one of her pieces.
