February 7 – March 18, 2015

Artist Reception: Saturday, February 7, 4–7 pm

Art Walk Reception: Thursday, February 5, 5–8 pm

Premiering oil paintings inspired by the interior and exterior landscapes of the Pioneer Valley, Meagher’s new body of work represents a masterful evolution in her abstract impasto style. Her passionate use of the palette knife forms unique image textures usually reserved for memories and reflections in rippling water. Through this ecstatic exploration of color and dimension, Meagher draws from the internal, meditating on her personal journey, vision, and jubilation when painting. She states, “I have my fears in this life, but I am never afraid to paint. Any passion that we give ourselves over to –opens the door to what’s inside of us.
