Fibers exhibit by Melissa Anne Morgan runs through Feb. 8 in Derryberry Gallery

An exhibit of fibers by Melissa Anne Morgan will be shown Jan. 14 through Feb. 8 in Tennessee Tech University’s Joan Derryberry Art Gallery, located on the first floor of the Roaden University Center.

A gallery talk and reception is set for Thursday, Feb. 7.

Morgan’s work consists of serigraphs on fabric. The exhibit will be filled with “images of lore, time-crusted nostalgia and a sense of the simplified past. These symbols exude a sense of purity and comfort. Yet, these are images of anxious times,” Morgan says. The serigraphs explore how people deal with anxieties through extreme behavior, such as collecting, hording and overindulging.

Morgan has a bachelor of arts degree in painting from Denison University, located in Granville, Ohio, and a master of fine arts degree in printmaking from Tyler School of Art at Temple University.

She has won many awards and shown her work in exhibits around the country.
