Jim Morin: Drawing and Painting

This season, OMAA is pleased to present the multi-faceted work of JimMorin(b. 1953, Washington, DC). Best known as the distinguished editorial cartoonist forThe Miami Heraldfor over 40 years, Morin is a longtime painter in oil and multiple Pulitzer Prize winner in journalism for his cartoons. He stands out among his peers by connecting the artistic process of working in these two different media, noting “My paintings affect my drawings and vice versa.” This exhibition features a selection of the artist’s drawings and paintings that spotlight theenvironment and landscape.Morin’s enduring concern for the planet and how varied human activities impact it over time emerges as particularly compelling within the broad spectrum of issues addressed in the more than ten thousand cartoons made over his career. His keen interest in this topic sustains and underlies many of his paintings, which celebrate the beauty of the natural world and reflect a sense of place that includes the landscape in Maine, and in Ogunquit where he now lives and works.

The Ogunquit Museum of American Art is grateful to the artist James Morin for loan of the drawings, paintings, and prints for this exhibition. It was assembled by independent curator Martha H. Kennedy and the artist in consultation with exhibition team members. The museum is grateful to the Miami Herald  for generous support for this exhibition.
