May 2nd - June 1st


Megan: Wow!  These garments have a head turning quality to them.  They are located in the back of the gallery but draw you in from the street because of their size and presence.  I think the craftsmanship is very well done and there is a lot of texture for my eye to fixate on.  There is a ancient, tribal reference in the overall design and combination of elements but the unusual colors - especially the black and silver - that give a more fantastical deity vibe.  I think the scale and amount of material is perfect and makes the piece really memorizing (and a little intimidating).  It's so good! 


Megan: This was a simple but really effective piece.  The tea set is almost cartoonishly traditional and formal which makes the black squiggle lines feel like a commentary on the status quo, outdated narratives of women or femininity, and the fussiness of something like a formal tea.  There is an almost 'gross' quality to the line-work but the style is very playful and funny!

Megan: I really love the thick texture of the paint and the 'meaty' quality of the way the paint is laying on the surfaces.  The bright blocked colors hold my attention and the compositions are that nice mixture of abstract and landscape, which I personally enjoy.  It makes my eye shift back and forth from seeing more three-dimensional form and flattened color blocks.

Performance piece and digital works

Megan: It is refreshing to see a performance piece during the art walk!  I loved the idea of using the glass and interior space that is typically not utilized as much.  Her makeup is really beautiful and I like how pretty and feminine she is in her own way with her own style.  Using makeup for mark-making is playful and a nice visual layer on top of the photographs hanging behind her.
