So my upcoming solo show is just around the corner! "A Palette of Paper" will be on display at the Center for the Arts, Caton Merchant Family Gallery in Manassas, VA. The art gallery is beautiful - and the art center is in a building that used to be an old candy factory. I can't wait to take pictures of the installed exhibit and share them. There will be around thirty collages that will include portraits, animals, cityscapes, and landscapes.

I'm delivering the work to the gallery in the next couple of days. The show will go up on February 8th and will run until March 22nd. I'm giving an artist talk on February 18th.


Here's the gallery's description of the show:

If you can imagine how scissors plying through everyday magazines can give an outcome of surprising and masterful art, then you might imagine the incredible collages of Megan Coyle. Working in classic art genres, Megan breaks down her images piece by piece, evolving them from bits of magazines into whole new, amazing compositions.
