After 20 years of creating maritime art and messaging in Savannah, Robert Claiborne Morris, Jr, the retired Chief Communications Officer for the Georgia Ports Authority, will open his new show, Outward Bound, at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum in October of 2023.
After three previous exhibitions at Ships of the Sea Museum and numerous other one-man shows at museums and galleries across the country, including the Telfair Museum, the Cincinnati Museum of Art, and the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Morris seeks to fuse his unique perspective as a longtime executive for the nations fastest growing port here in Savannah and his new life aboard Grace, the Swedish Storebro Royal Cruiser 34 into his latest work.
The signature piece for the show, Outward Bound," is reflective of the nautical expression used to describe ships leaving the safety of harbor for the promise and adventure of the open seas and the famed survival course Morris attended as a teenager where he learned to employ the discipline of mind, body and soul to overcome extreme conditions.
I hope this latest body of work takes the viewer into a closer even more intimate relationship with the sea around us than my previous work. I have literally set sail from the safe harbor I once knew into a phantasmagoric world of color, illusion and metaphor.
