Opening Reception: Meghan Hildebrand: Changing Channels
Opening Reception, Artist in Attendance
This collection of 13 new paintings features a blend of detailed figurative elements and abstract landscapes, an exciting shift in Hildebrand's style which adds to the sensations of wonder the artist is known to create.
In this series, imagining lives lived at the water’s edge, I answered the pull to stare at the sea. I’ve envisioned the kinds of places I’d most like to encounter, and how it might feel to be there. The Salish Sea, a tangle of islands and channels, provides the foundation and playground for painterly experimentation.
