grayDUCK Gallery presents Margaret Meehan & Jade Walker: "Cloud Shadows" opening reception

eventdetail
Margaret Meehan

"Cloud Shadows" is a visual conversation between Margaret Meehan and Jade Walker drawing on years of friendship, shared research and visual interests. In their work both artists comment on how we live our lives and relate to others.

For their 2022 collaborative exhibition "Migration" at Arts Fort Worth, they created work that mitigated the distance of their locations during the global pandemic: Jade in Austin and Margaret in Richmond, Virginia. Through mailed correspondence and packages of studio materials, the exhibition evolved, overlapped, and resolved itself – with each artist finding a way to migrate between studios and across the miles that separated them.

In "Cloud Shadows," the artists continue their exploration of shared interests (femininity, nature, resistance, and acceptance). But instead of a literal collaboration on physical work, this exhibition was predicated on an ongoing dialogue about their intentions. How could they use their years of knowledge both as artists and friends to help the other challenge and grow individually? In addition to emails, materials and texts, Meehan and Walker also shared books and contemporary fairy tales that seemed to hold various human cycles while simultaneously connecting to other (many times wiser) creatures, such as birds and insects, of both this world and an imaginary space.

The exhibition will remain on display through March 3.
