Figure A MODERN CHALK-TALK SKETCHING FOR YOU REDPATH INTRODUCES BRILLIANT AMERICAN ARTIST-ARCHITECT CHARLES MORGAN AIA CHICAGO ASSOCIATE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT Figure ORIGINAL - ENTERTAINING - INSTRUCTIV Figure A MODERN CHALK-TALK SKETCHING FOR YOU CHARLES MORGAN, A. I. A., noted American artist, architect, Chicago associate of Frank Lloyd Wright, lecturer and entertainer takes the platform with a brilliant and original modern chalk-talk—SKETCHING FOR YOU. SKETCHING FOR YOU is a modern chalk-talk, and, therefore, different. In a simple, highly entertaining and graphic way, Charles Morgan deals with modern art, architecture and modern life. While producing his amazing sketches in color, which he does with miraculous speed, he makes his audience laugh with him as he separates the false from the true in art and in life. He shows the growth of architecture from ancient times. He explains what the trend in modern architecture is, and that there is a difference between modern and modernistic. He deals in principles and makes no compromise with truth. Sketching is such a joy to Charles Morgan that it is the most natural thing he does. In a flying trip to Europe, Mr. Morgan produced an amazing series of sketches in colors. His Barcelona Wharf was chosen as one of the fifty best prints of 1926 by the Graphic Arts Society of New York. His sketches and portraits have been widely exhibited, many of them in the Art Institute of Chicago and galleries of other leading cities. But Charles Morgan is more than a great artist. His responsiveness, radiant smile and his power of doing everything in the most beautiful way, make him a true inspiration to all who have the honor of knowing him. To him the simple way is the beautiful way. Some of Charles Morgan's recent engagements include—University of Chicago; University of Illinois; Ohio State University; Northwestern University; Chicago Art Institute; Arche Club, Chicago; Fine Arts Association, Springfield, Ill,; American Institute of Architects, National Convention, Washington, D. C.; Tavern Club, Chicago; Milwaukee Rotary Club, etc. ABOUT CHARLES MORGAN'S WORK AND HIS MODERN CHALK-TALK—SKETCHING FOR YOU. Chicago Daily Tribune (Eleanor Jewett) —Charles Morgan is artist and architect, visionary and realist. An exhibition of his water colors, lithographs, etchings, pastels and renderings is now on view in the Kroch gallery. Perhaps it is for his architectural renderings that Mr. Morgan is known best. In this particular division of art, his fame is countrywide. Charles Morgan is an able portraitist. There are enough portrait heads in the exhibit to give this fact weight. His Betty Kay is a delicious laughing child face. Dearest is a delicate and sensitive impression of his mother, an inspiration to him though she is no longer living. Chicago Evening Post —Charles Morgan has a remarkable talent. He is an artist as well as an architect. His architectural renderings have given him a national reputation. In the current exhibit he has a number of portraits and pictures of subjects other than architecture, and holds one's interest with every fresh undertaking. He is without doubt the most gifted artist working in Chicago today. State Teachers College, Oshkosh, Wis. (Dr. Florence Case)—Mr. Morgan was delightful. His personality wins at once. His talk was an illustrated historical talk, showing the growth of architecture from ancient times. He talked with ease and grace; his drawings were quickly and skillfully made. His wit captivated the students, and we had a full house. Altogether, it was a thoroughly satisfactory morning. Prof. Rexford Newcomb, Dean of Fine Arts, University of Illinois—One envies the joy which is apparent in the making of the sketches by Charles Morgan before his audiences.

Charles Fabens Kelley, Director of the School of Chicago Art Institute—Charles Morgan is doing a very important service in explaining by his graphic and colorful drawings and his brilliant talks, just what is going on in architecture today. Withal he has a very entertaining way of putting things. Dr. Henry Wriston, President, Lawrence College, Appleton, Wis.—The modern chalk-talk, Sketching for You by Mr. Morgan, was the greatest high light of the whole session for me personally and the students are still filled with enthusiasm. State Teachers College, Whitewater, Wis. (H. O. Lathrop)—Mr. Morgan's lecture was very much appreciated by our student body. It was highly successful. The students and the faculty also enjoyed the individual and group discussions of Mr. Morgan very much.
