Where Field Meets Sky is a collection of abstracted landscape assemblages by visual artist, Megan Fitzgerald. These works combine textiles dyed with foraged plants and gestural paintings to create patchwork landscapes inspired by Prince Edward County.
Opening Reception: Saturday March 2, 4-6 PM.
Open weekends for the month of March.
Megan is an artist from Montreal, Quebec working within the realms of painting, poetry and textiles to expand boundaries of the landscape genre. Her work addresses themes of journey, belonging and place, responding to notions of the unseen landscape. Taking walking as subject and tool, she documents findings, expressing the various possibilities of magic whilst exploring. Her paintings weave multiple narratives that are drawn from art history, mythology and her own ongoing collections of objects and experiences while on long distance trails. She likes the big things, and the little things, finding comfort in the closeness between the two.
Megan holds a Diplome des beaux-arts from Dawson College, a BFA with Honours from OCAD University and an MFA from NSCAD University where she taught undergraduate classes in contemporary drawing. She has travelled extensively by foot, partaking in residencies in Spain and the United Kingdom, NGO projects in Vietnam and held positions as art facilitator across various institutions in Europe and Canada. Megan currently works from her studio in Prince Edward County, Ontario and is represented by galleries in Canada and the United States.
