Meyer Vogl Gallery is excited to announce Good on Paper, the gallery’s first-ever exhibition of works on paper, featuring paintings by Susan Altman, Susan Colwell, Laurie Meyer, Melanie Parke, Anne Darby Parker, Marissa Vogl, and Carrie Beth Waghorn.
“We thought we’d kick off the first exhibition of 2021 with something a little different: paper,” Gallery Director and Co-owner Katie Geer said. “Most of these artists tend to work on canvas, and there’s something a little freeing – and perhaps a little bit thrilling – about the different surface. In addition, works on paper often start at a lower price than paintings on canvas – a plus for collectors.”
Artist Melanie Parke largely turned to paper during the height of COVID lock-down in her state of Michigan.
“I love how working on paper feels so vital and immediate, free from the labor and time intensity of working in oil,” Parke said. “It was just what I needed to restart my image making process after weeks absorbed in uncertainty and loss.”
An all-day pop-in opening celebration will be held on Friday, March 5th, from 10 am to 5 pm, and the show will run until March 26th.
