Art From the Heartland Gets Some Love

Posted on June 23, 2016

“From Installation Nation to Art Shack,”, June 2016

“Morgan Frew’s oil painting “Pluto is for Lovers” gives a little loving attention to dwarf planet. (Pluto’s declassification as an actual planet was a matter of great debate inside and outside the scientific community, but mostly outside.)

It’s most prominent feature, an ice field, is outlined by a glowing neon tube—raised above the surface of the painting—in the shape of a heart. Frew’s depiction of the planet, in soft and purplish pastels, makes that 3-billion-mile-distant dwarf planet seem almost like a place you might want to bring your significant other on your honeymoon.”
