Art Exhibits


When: Thu., Feb. 9 2017

Harris Stanton Gallery’s Cleveland location opens its first new exhibition of 2017 this week with Constructions, a two-person show featuring the work of Lynn O’Brien and Meaghan Reed. As the title hints, both artists’ “construct” their works using an eclectic variety of materials. Better known for her intricately detailed paintings of imaginary birds, O’Brien’s new series of whimsical bird constructions are created using a combination of acrylic paint, hand-painted collage papers, wood cutouts and colored pencils. O’Brien studied at the University of Arizona. Her work was won numerous awards and is in many public collections, including the Tucson International Airport. After receiving her MFA from Kent State University, Meaghan Reed returned to Kent State University, where she currently teaches. For her portion of the exhibition, Reed has created two-dimensional assemblages using vibrant layered paper. Inspired by molecular level imagery, the artist says her juxtaposition of new and found materials reflects early and contemporary ideas in science. Harris Stanton Gallery hosts an opening reception for Constructions from 5:30 to 8 tonight with a gallery talk with the artists taking place midway through the reception. Constructions remains on view through March 18. Admission is free. (Usmani)
