Artist's Reception: Sunday, March 5th, 2:00 - 4:00 PM
For the month of March, the Library will exhibit Paper Playgrounds, Canvas Carnivals & Other Oddities by Meagan J. Meehan in the gallery. This exhibition seeks to promote joy, happiness, and playfulness. Amid the stresses of everyday life, the artwork of Meagan J. Meehan aims to be an amusing distraction: a means of delighting, entertaining, or even shocking viewers into smiling, pondering, and—at the very least—looking. The artwork seeks to invoke peoples’ perceptions and enable them to enter a world where there is no right or wrong, up or down, left or right, back or front; instead, there is only imagination and creativity. The exhibition seeks to provoke audiences to embrace the unusual, the colorful, and the joyful. It aims to play with the viewers’ perceptions, enlighten them to the shapes present in common (recycled) objects, and—most importantly—provide enjoyment.
