In June, Jack Morris and son Charles opened the 2,500-square-foot Third Coast Gallery in Galveston’s downtown with the objective of introducing new artists to the island and vice-versa.
Their concept was to design a fine art gallery that’s both upscale and inviting. They achieved that. The art is well spaced on the interior brick walls of the 1874 Hanretta Building in The Strand Historic District of Galveston. The ceiling is high, the lighting is done right, and Jack Morris’ work easel in the corner overlooking the courtyard offers some insight into his technique.
