(1869-1951)

Artist and educator Georgia Morgan studied
painting at Randolph-Macon Woman's College
and at the Académie Julian in Paris. She was a
co-founder of the Lynchburg Civic Art League
in 1932 and helped establish the city's Federal
Art Gallery, a Works Progress Administration
project, in 1936. Both groups promoted arts
education and exhibition for people of all socioeconomic backgrounds. She chaired the art
department at Lynchburg College for 30 years
and was elected to the National Association of
Women Painters and Sculptors. Her work,
primarily miniatures and landscapes, was
exhibited at the Paris Salon and in galleries
from Maine to Florida.
