Description

On Friday, December 1 (6 – 9 p.m.) and Saturday, December 2 (12 – 6 p.m.) master story-teller Dean Morrissey will make his much-anticipated holiday appearance. In addition to being a renowned artist, Morrissey is an award-winning children’s author whose resplendent art has dazzled art collectors for decades. His lavishly illustrated stories originate in The Great Kettles, an enchanted Chain of Islands across the Sea of Time and home to The Sandman and other legendary characters. There, even the most familiar-looking objects are never what they seem. Morrissey paints ordinary objects in extraordinary settings, appealing to the child in everyone.

When Morrissey turned his considerable talents to portraying Santa Claus, he did so with his own brand of magic. Over the years, his paintings of Santa have become widely sought-after by art collectors. “Morrissey’s Santa Claus portraits are timeless tributes to a beloved figure,” said Alan Brown, Gallery One president. “We hosted Dean’s first Gallery One exhibit in 1993. Art lovers came with their small children, and Dean took the time to talk to each child as he personalized their books and artwork. Over the years, they have continued to return, many now with children of their own, to greet Dean Morrissey each time he appears at Gallery One.”

Gallery One will unveil new original artwork, including a new, never-before seen Santa original. Morrissey will give an informal lecture at 7 p.m. Friday. He will also personalize books and artwork for collectors both days.

The public will be treated to a free concert at the Holiday Ring-Along with the United Hand Bell Choir at 2 p.m. on December 2 at Gallery One. Holiday gift specials will be offered and refreshments will be served.
