Hi there. Thanks for checking out my website!

DSC_0058My newest pairing of etchings with an historical postcard is “St. John’s: 1912-2017” (see below). This was part of a two-woman show at Devon House Gallery this past August. In September you may have seen my artwork in the lovely Two Whales Coffee Shop, Port Rexton. Then I went to Channel-Port aux Basques for a wonderful event commemorating the 75th anniversary of the sinking of the S.S. Caribou on October 14th, 1942.

If you are interested buying anything you’ve seen at a show or craft fair, my work is available at the Red Ochre Gallery, 96 Duckworth Street, St. John’s, NL: http://www.redochregallery.ca.

Upcoming Events:

  • Printers’ Fair this Sunday: November 19, 11:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Rocket Room, Rocket Bakery, on Water Street, St. John’s, NL. I’ll be bringing my woodblock engravings and unframed etchings.
  • Atlantic ArtSpace: November 21 to 25. I’ll be working at Atlantic Place, Water Street, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and will have some of my woodblock engravings and postcard pieces there for sale.
  • Gems for Christmas: the annual Christmas show at the Red Ochre Gallery opens November 25. December hours are: Tuesday to Saturday 10:30 am to 5:30 pm and Sunday 1 to 4:30 p.m. (Half days on Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and closed Christmas and Boxing Days.) Small gift-sized prints by me, and paintings by my husband, David Baltzer will be available
  • On-going Research on the S.S. Caribou–check out my page “S.S. Caribou: Passengers & Crew 14/10/1942”. I am trying to learn everything I can about the people aboard the Caribou on October 14, 1942. If you can add anything to my “current list” please leave a comment. I’m hoping to update my information with the new stories that I learned this fall at the Channel-Port aux Basque Museum. My new comic book “Lifeboats Down: the Sinking of the S.S. Caribou” will be published by Breakwater Books in fall 2018.
  • Woodblock Engraving Workshop. I’ll be holding my next one in January, 2018 probably at the Annex in Mount Pearl. Beginners welcome! $75 (+ $20 if you buy the engraving tool). More information will follow.Morgan_StJohn's1912-2017sm

    Hi Dick, I did visit the Gustav Dore exhibit. I was especially impressed by the skill of his woodblock engravers–which I (of course) would have liked to have seen more of. There was one engraver who worked with him (I think his name was Pisan) who was especially impressive. Thanks for telling me about the show.
