The Art of Arlene Morris

Arlene Morris is a successful Maine-based artist. For ten years, she was the director of Spindleworks, an arts studio in Brunswick, Maine for developmentally disabled adults. Her witness to artistic expression without boundaries allowed her own work to break from traditional training and explore unique mediums.

Morris exhibits extensively in Maine and exclusively in New York at Figureworks. In Maine, she has exhibited at the June Fitzpatrick Gallery in Portland, Icon Gallery in Brunswick, Elements Gallery and the prestigious Farnsworth Museum in Rockland. Her work is in many private and public collections.
