New England-based artist Megan Carty will be hosting an exclusive opening of Yaaas, Queen! Celebrating the Majesty of Mother Nature and wanted to see if you’re interested in covering the event and/or Megan as an artist.
Carty, who is known for infusing her paintings with a vibrant sense of positivity and a spirited palette of bold, energetic colors, is excited to share her latest collection featuring sculptural paintings, that celebrate the majesty of Mother Nature with vivid colors and marks inspired by the great outdoors.
Inspired by topographic maps, in each piece, Carty folds and manipulates raw canvas into mountains, valleys, lakes, and rivers as if seen from a passing plane. The canvas is dyed using acrylic inks, acrylic paint, and pencil. As visual inspiration, Carty refers to her numerous travels to Acadia National Park, Maine, and Portland, Maine where she grew up. She is moved by the numerous colorful ecosystems on display, from the tide pools to the freshwater springs and lush forests.
Taking place on Friday, October 20, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., readers can view Carty’s work in person at Day’s Jewelers (567 Amherst Street, Nashua, NH, 03063) or online here.
The evening of fine art and jewelry will also feature an exclusive artist talk from Megan at 6:30 p.m. The show will be on view through January 3, 2024.
All are welcome, artwork will be available for sale in person or directly from Megan’s website and jewelry will be available for sale onsite.
