Here’s another mini collage that I finished the other day – and it was inspired by a grinning elephant that I saw during my last visit to the National Zoo.

Whew, this week has been a busy one already – I’m pretty good at keeping my hands busy. Anyway, I’ve gotten started on another possible portrait/figurative piece for my solo exhibition next year and I’ll post progress pictures later. I’m also really itching to get started on more animal portraits, living near the zoo has its perks – it gives me plenty of opportunities to take pictures for future projects. Anyway, here’s the finished collage that I’ve been working on recently.

Megan Coyle’s collages, “Street in Old Town” and “The Torpedo Factory,” were on display in Alexandria, Virginia’s City Hall.

This particular City Hall exhibition was entitled “Our Town” and focused on images of Alexandria or work about Alexandria, the diverse population that makes up the city, the varied daily activities of the city, and the historical events that define what Alexandria is today.

The exhibit was part of an ongoing bi-annual juried exhibit that City Hall holds every year, featuring the art from members of the Del Ray Artisans, the Art League, and the Torpedo Factory Artists Association.

Chris Haggerty, a Professor of Art and Art Therapy at Marymount University, was the Juror of the exhibition.

Exhibition Hours:
Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Mixed Media Multiplied

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ve been pretty busy and the weekend definitely went by too fast for me, a common dilemma. I did a little gallery sitting for the Del Ray Artisans, so I took a few pictures of the “Mixed Media Multiplied” exhibition. Below are images of my mixed media paintings that were up – paintings that I did a while ago when I was in college. I also included a couple of photos of the overall exhibition so you can get an idea of the space.
