ORGANIC MECHANISMS: NEW ARTWORK BY MEGHAN BAILEY
TO BE EXHIBITED AT WASHINGTON STREET GALLERY
APRIL 8 – APRIL 29, 2023
March 2023, Somerville, Massachusetts – Organic Mechanisms, an exhibition that features paintings, wall hangings, collage, and relief panels by Meghan Bailey, will be on view at Washington Street Gallery from April 8 – April 29, 2023. The opening reception is Saturday, April 15, 2023, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and is open to the public.
Bailey’s current body of work transforms the imagery of discarded machines using abstraction, design, pattern, and bright Pop colors. Exploration with paint, collage, hand printing, and marker shifts the machinery into repurposed but impractical forms. The resulting forms suggest invented, hybrid mechanisms that merge mechanical features with natural and decorative qualities.
Organic Mechanisms features artworks Bailey created while completing her Master of Fine Art (MFA) at Lesley University College of Art & Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 2021 to 2023. Bailey also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
Meghan Bailey was born in Lawrence and lives in Arlington. Her studio is at the Washington Street Art Center in Somerville.
Washington Street Gallery is located at 321 Washington Street, Somerville MA, 02123. Gallery hours are Saturdays 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. and by appointment.
