Silver Coast Winery Presents The Fine Art of Roland Morin

Roland MorinAugust 1, 2011 - Ocean Isle Beach, NC - Silver Coast Winery is proud to present the fine art of Roland Morin. Beginning August 13, 2011 Morin's bright colored and modern style paintings will be displayed in the winery's one of a kind art gallery through November 13th, 2011.

Roland Morin was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1954. His artistic talents were discovered at the early age of 9 and he later attended PICA Art School in Baltimore. Although he was involved in numerous art shows, he only attended the school for a short time. His use of bright colors in his paintings reveals his past and future. Morin's vision of the world was a sinister one painted in dark and bleak colors. Later in life, he had a revelation and became devoted to Jesus Christ. His art then changed. He began using simplistic forms, mainly flowers, transforming them into vibrant-colored contemporary pieces. "Let's face it, the world is not a simple place to live in anymore; therefore, why should we, as artists, make our artwork any more difficult for them to understand and accept? I find it a challenge to express my artwork without the use of many colors. It is fun for me to explain myself in this format", he comments on his simplistic styles. Morin enjoys different edgy shapes and mixing colors to express his art.

Silver Coast Winery is a full winemaking facility housing an eclectic art gallery, two unique gift shops, and beautiful picnic grounds. Tours and tastings take place Monday through Saturday from 11 am - 5pm and on Sundays from 12pm - 4pm. Hours: Monday through Saturday 11am - 6pm and Sunday from Noon - 5pm.
