Georgia Museum of Art
The exhibition “Avocation to Vocation: Prints by F. Townsend Morgan” is the first to focus entirely on the artist since his death and includes about 40 prints of sailboats (one of his favorite subjects), architecture and natural beauty. Morgan wrote that he had pursued art as an avocation (or hobby) from 1915 to 1934, then turned professional. He was born in Brooklyn, into a family that fell on hard times during the Great Depression, then found employment with various New Deal art programs from 1934 to 1942. Morgan also traveled widely, making prints for his own enjoyment and for hire in places including Philadelphia, the Virgin Islands and Key West, Florida.
