Her work is included in the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY., Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA., Yellowstone Art Museum, Billings, MT and in U.S. Embassies located in Bagdad and Tunisia to name a few.

Cole Morgan unveils monument designed for Landgoed Rhederoord in Holland.
Landgoed Rhederoord (Estate Rhederoord) was built in 1746 as a county “getaway” for Arnhem notables. The mansion is now one of the most luxurious hotels in the region. The estate is surrounded by a 12 hectare private park that is adjacent to Veluwe National Park.
Cole Morgan was asked to design and construct a new fountain to replace the original destroyed during World War II. The 19th century architect Eduard Petzold designed the original fountain. Morgan has been working on this project for more than 2 years.
The water emanating from the fountain is glacial, pure, ready to drink and is said to be over 10,000 years old. The estate owner wanted the fountain to serve as a functional monument, so people can drink directly from it, while also providing an accent to the imposing facade of the historical building.
The black granite for the fountain came from China. Local craftsmen constructed the monument,under the supervision of Morgan, an architect, and the Rijksmonumenten Dienst (National Monuments Service).
The glacial water will be bottled and offered for sale in the region sometime this year. Morgan devised the name for the water “aQaaQa" and is also designing the label for the bottle.
44th annual art auction
YAM wraps up big night with $10,000 bid
Cows standing in a snowstorm ruled the night at the Yellowstone Art Museum's 44th annual art auction.
A $10,000 bid on Ted Waddell's work, "Motherwell's Angus #24," brought a roar of approval to the crowd Saturday night. At press time it was the highest bid of the evening, and it looked like the YAM's goal of raising $260,000 in one night would be met. Hours before that winning bid on Waddell's painting, artists and buyers said it felt like it was going to be a big night.
The bid set a record price for a small piece of Theodore's. "Motherwell's Angus #24," measures 24"x30", and the bid of $10,000 is well above his gallery prices of a paintings this size.
YAM executive director Robyn Peterson and her staff drew a standing ovation at the beginning of the live auction and Peterson thanked the standing-room-only crowd for supporting the arts.

The following information was published in the Idaho Mountain Express - January 4, 2012 Issue
Acclaimed painter and sculptor David deVillier will set up at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts late this month for a five-day intensive course focused on advancing the way students think about creating art.
Each student will be encouraged to think about how paint is used to convey personal and individual creative expressions. The class will explore a series of painting problems that require the use of imagination and invention. Students will work on drawings and small painting studies before advancing to a larger painted surface; students will not be working from still life, photography or the visible landscape.
Paints for this class are oil, acrylic or watercolor—whatever students are most comfortable with—and all levels of experience are welcome.
The curious can see deVillier’s work at Gail Severn Gallery. The artist spends his time between Sun Valley and LaGrande, Ore.
