Abstractivity by Meagan Brown
Opening Reception: June 2, 7-10pm
Hours to June 13: Tuesday-Friday, 12-6pm; Saturday, 12-5pm
Abstractivity is a look at the blurred perception of the world and of myself, through my art and through my bipolar disorder. I’ve always found it difficult to really focus myself to one stream when my strengths have always lay in not following the prescribed path. This show allowed me to really to follow my natural instincts and let the work guide me to what a piece wanted to be. Different subjects, different techniques and different states of mind are all in these pieces and in all of them a different piece of myself.
Meagan Brown is a prominent young Winnipeg artist who has specialized in abstract art and jewelry design. Although primarily self-taught, Meagan has participated in the Arts and Culture Industries of Manitoba mentorship program where she studied under local artist Jordan Miller. She also teaches in after-school programs for Seven Oaks School Division and runs workshops for various groups including the Artbeat Studio alumni.
Diagnosed young, Meagan struggled for many years with managing her mental health. Since beginning her career in art and design Meagan has had no major relapses with her bipolar disorder and credits much of this to the satisfaction and joy she finds in her work and being able to share it with others.
