The Morgan Gallery, at the KCC, is made possible through a generous donation by the Morgan Family of Kittery, ME. The gallery space is prominently located by the STAR THEATRE and provides a new venue for showcasing works by visual artists. The KCC Visual Arts Committee is responsible for curating the programming and schedules an ongoing series of art exhibits to showcase visual artists. Professional artists are encouraged to submit works for review for future exhibits. All works are reviewed and juried by a sub-committee of the Arts and Culture committee.

This gallery is free and open to the public during KCC business hours and also open during performances in the STAR Theatre. The Morgan Gallery is located in the Kittery Community Center at 120 Rogers Road in Kittery, Maine.

Current exhibit

Ken fellows, “Along the seacoast…Portsmouth to Stonington”

VIEW OUR VIRTUAL RECEPTION

Beginning in October, Local artist, Ken Fellows, will be displaying his beautiful collection of work entitled “Along the Seacoast: Portsmouth to Stonington” at the Morgan Gallery at the Kittery Community Center.

Fellows began painting watercolors 30 years ago after retiring from a 40 year career in academic medicine. “Painting is the ‘second mountain’ in my life…and about as fulfilling as the first one. How lucky that is,” says Ken.

From rocky coastlines and pocket harbors to piles of weathered rope amid bent lobster traps, Ken is inspired by local and mid-coast scenes. He says, “If there are muses, mine hang-out primarily in Portsmouth, Kittery, Monhegan Island, and Stonington, ME.” One of his favorite, recurrent themes is contrasting the disorder and randomness of nature’s beauty beside the order and angularity of wharfs, houses, and old public buildings.

Fellows’ exhibit will run from October through December. Face masks are required when visiting the KCC. The gallery is free and open to the public during the Community Center’s regular business hours. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we ask that visitors please call ahead to view the exhibit. 

Deck The Walls

Adorning the first floor hallway walls are pieces of local artwork in a more casual setting than the Morgan Gallery.  This informal showing area will feature children’s artwork, as well as other local artists’ pieces.  These pieces are constantly changing throughout the year.
