Where does the time go? Only 10 days now until The BIG THAW and we are excited! To all those out there in the cyberspace that have been following us, please be sure to tell your friends or… even better! Take them with you to Mayo Street Arts Center at 10 Mayo St. in Portland on Saturday, April 16th. We just realized that this is the weekend before Easter – so what a great opportunity to fill your baskets with local, springtime treats for the kiddos to find among the new grass and crocuses. Lovely!
Today we are featuring Meagan Anderson whose name you might recognize from all the chattering I did about her at the beginning of February when she and Kris Johnsen (of Emblem Studio) were designing our incredibly awesome poster. Well, Meagan does more than cater to my screen printing needs and I thought you might like to see some more of her work!
Animals are a regular theme in Meagan’s art, when asked about this Meagan said: “I have a strong attraction to the human condition and this leads me to utilize an allegorical animal kingdom to depict and describe this understanding of identity and interaction. I am particulary attracted to drawing carnivores and exploring the savage competition through the roles of prey and predator -in the hopes of a greater understanding of the dualistic nature of human identity as a member of both an organic natural world as well as of the synthetic cultural systems of civilization.”
In addition to the awesome prints you’re seeing here you can be sure to find drawings, collages, cozy knits and sewn items at the table she’ll be sharing with Emblem Studio at The BIG THAW!
