Galleria Valéncia at Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is filled with nearly 50 unique and colorful pieces of artwork created by art students of Jeffrey Morgan. Mr. Morgan teaches Kindergarten through 4th grade at Winona Area Public Schools (WAPS), Washington-Kosciusko, Goodview and Rollingstone Elementary Schools.

Throughout the month of April visitors will be treated to creative works that represent lessons on famous artists and their styles including Modiglian style self portraits, Rousseau stylized landscapes, and even pieces inspired by the classic books “Harold and the Purple Crayon.” Other projects explore color relationships and a variety of art materials and techniques such as string painting, still life, and collage.

The community is invited to stroll through Galleria Valéncia during regular office hours and during any programming. To check schedules, please call: 507-453-5500.

MCA is in the process of setting up art shows for the 2018-19 school year. If schools, groups, or professional artists are interested in displaying their work in Galleria Valéncia, contact Megan at mca@smumn.edu.This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
