ART: Larry Heath & Morgan Newberry on Display

April 12, 2019 12:00pm–4:00pm

For the April exhibit, The Klamath Art Association and Gallery is hosting two phenomenal photographic artists, Larry Heath and Morgan Newberry. "The Artistry of Larry Heath and Morgan Newberry" will run from April 7th through April 28tht, showcasing the photographic works by the talented duo. The exhibit will open with an artist’s reception on Sunday, April 7th from noon to 4 PM.

Heath is a native of Klamath Falls. Around the age 17 or 18, he was introduced to opiates by his doctor, and his life turned upside down; eventually he served time in federal prison for 10 years. When he completed his parole in 2010, Heath started fishing the local waterways and was stunned by the wildlife and bought his first camera. Soon Heath stopped fishing (taking photos from a boat was extremely hard due to all the movement) and started walking instead to photograph the beauty of nature. This led to entering photos at fairs. All his photos are from local spots including Veterans Park and Pelican Marina, “Crater Lake is the farthest I’ve been with my camera”, Heath proclaims.

After he shoots, Heath prints his photographs in using watercolor and other illustration filters, “it is quite the challenge to get something you want to print using these modes and that challenge keeps me going”.

Morgan Newberry has always loved photography and wildlife but only in the last five years combined the two seriously. Moving to Klamath Falls in the fall of 2017 from the Portland area was a great decision.

“After being a steel worker for thirty years, cruising the refuge with my cameras is a pretty darn good retirement if you ask me, the birding and wildlife in this area is awesome to say the least, and living near Kingsley field is just a bonus.” Newberry is captivated by the sounds of freedom as the jets roar by trying to capture the planes in action.

This is Newberry’s first gallery show. “I guess the reason I do photography is that I like to share this beautiful world of ours one snapshot at a time!”


The Klamath Art Gallery is located in historic Maple Park at 120 Riverside Drive, at the South end of the Link River "birding trail." The gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays, 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
