Spotlight show features Artisan, Sally Morris
Sally Morris will be displaying glass, clay and Japanese dolls in a two week display at the Yaquina Art Association in Newport Oregon. Her show will run from March 15-March 28 and the gallery is open from 11 am to 4 pm daily. The gallery is located at 789 NW Beach Drive in Nye Beach (Newport).
Sally is not only talented in pastels and watercolors, but she enjoys creating things in glass and clay. She is currently taking the YAA clay class that meets on Tuesdays from 12:30-3:30 in the upstairs classroom of the Visual Art Center. The class is open to the community. Sally also loves working with glass. She started taking classes 5 years ago and has been taking small glass pieces and shaping them into a larger piece or fusing them together to create shapes and beautiful colors. Once the glass is just as she wants it, it is fired once to fuse the glass and then fired again to make it into a shape such as a bowl. Her glass pieces include vases and mobiles. Sally has lived in many countries and gets inspiration from her visits. She lived in Puerto Rico, Azores, and Japan and studied art there. She will be displaying some Japanese dolls that she learned to make in Japan. She moved here from San Diego in 2004 where she studied colored pencil and drawing. She now takes pastel and watercolor classes as well as the clay class. She recently returned from the Holy Land and is excited to do some artwork depicting that area.
