Margaret Meehan

 

 

With images culled from history and literature, Margaret Meehan's delicately handles a variety of media ranging from photography to sculpture, installation and sound. Her carefully choreographed works let innocence collide with the monstrous, evoking race, gender, and empathy for otherness.

Margaret Meehan earned her MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle. She has been shown at ArtPace San Antonio, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, The Dallas Museum of Art, Flowers Gallery in London, Conduit Gallery in Dallas, TX and Ulterior Gallery in New York. Awards and residencies include the Nasher Sculpture Center Microgrant (2015), Artpace International Residency (2014), The Lighthouse Works Residency (2013), Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts Residency (2009), Dozier Travel Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art (2008) and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship (2020). Meehan’s work has been featured in the Guardian, Sculpture Magazine, New American Paintings, and Artforum, among others. She currently lives in Richmond, Virginia but misses her Texas community terribly.
