Calm Afternoons

Calm Afternoons by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Calm Afternoons"
 Collage on paper
12"x16"

I've been pretty busy these past few days - August has been filled with trips to Charleston, SC as well as NYC. I'm still working away in the studio, working on a landscape/cityscape series that will be exhibited at the beginning of next year.

The piece that you see above was inspired by the National Mall in Washington, DC - which has nice park areas with trees and benches alongside walkways and bike paths. Every so often when I stroll around the National Mall, I'll notice the way the light hits the trees and the way shadows are cast. This piece was inspired by a series of photographs I took one summer day when the light was particularly bright and the grass and trees looked especially green.

Bosty goes to Charleston, SC

Bosty goes to Charleston by Megan Coyle
Bosty decided to head down south to Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently D.C. summers aren't hot enough for him.

He wanted his picture taken by some of the area's landmarks. Oh no - no lifeguard on duty? Oh well, Bosty decided to go ahead and wade at his own risk...

After some fountain wading, he strolled along the pathways by the water.

Occasionally ducking out of the heat for a moment by cooling off in the shaded areas.

He liked admiring the flowers and beautiful views of the water.

Towards the end of the day, he decided to treat himself to some ice cream. "Giant cone of gelato? Don't mind if I do!"

Before he ended his day-long excursion of wandering 'round the city, he stopped by the famous City Market in Charleston. Bosty couldn't believe how big the market was! He hoped to find all sorts of doggy treats there.

From Fur to Feathers Exhibit

From Fur to Feathers Megan Coyle Exhibit
Yesterday I installed my "From Fur to Feathers" exhibit at the North Charleston City Gallery, which is located inside of the Charleston Convention Center. I was pretty pleased to see how much foot-traffic the gallery gets.

Here are the two collages we installed by the front desk - "Brown Bear" is the image that was used to promote my show.

Here's an angle of part of the space. I have just about thirty animal collages on display there.

And here's a view of the hallway that you walk through to see the artwork. I was pretty surprised to see how much wall space I had. Anyway, it was great getting the show up. I'll be back again once it closes to pick-up my work.
