Morton Gallery August-September 2019

Gallery SosseiOn the first floor…

See beautiful portraits, landscapes, and reproductions of iconic images, all painted in oil by William Sossei.  Bill says, “My work has no message…it represents attempts to capture images that have, for unexplainable reasons, caused me to spend enjoyably small portions of my life painting them.”

(Note: There’s one more behind the Reference Desk on the second floor.)
