A solo exhibit of Edith Borax-Morrison's work titled "Monoliths and Magic" will be on view at Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven from February 16 through March 19, 2017.

Running concurrently is a solo exhibit of paintings by Frank Bruckmann titled "Studio Still Lifes." There is an opening reception on Saturday, March 11 from 3 pm - 6 pm, with artist talks at 5 pm.

Morrison's bio on Kehler Liddell's website states, "Edith's work is her identity. It is consistent, compulsive, with meticulous attention to detail. Each abstract drawing that is rendered in pen and ink, contains a series of intricate interwoven lines or circles or marks creating a unique maze like image. She calls her artwork "Mind fibers" or "Penweave " drawings. They are influenced by surreal, mystical, and psychological elements from the past. She is fascinated with weaving, hair,  fairy tales, myths, and  primitive societies. Edith finds her work is all consuming and at any hour day or night she may find herself at the drawing board working steadily on the piece until she is satisfied it is finished and has merit.

Edith received a MA degree from C.W. Post College, Greenvale, New York. She also studied at Art Students League in NY and with Paul Margin art studio in Hempstead, NY."

Regular gallery hours are Thursday and Friday 11 am - 4 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10 am - 4 pm. Kehler Liddell Gallery is located at 873 Whalley Avenue, New Haven, CT.
