HE HAS seven solo art exhibitions under his belt at Marine House at Beer gallery, but on Saturday local artist Michael Morgan was there to sign copies of his latest book about his work.

Called 80 @ 80, The Paintings of Michael Morgan, it is Michael's third book and is proving to be popular with his fans, with 48 copies pre-ordered or sold at Saturday's launch.
