About this Event

"The essential question is…can I do motherhood and art SUCCESSFULLY? My answer is YES. YES YES YES a million times over! "

-Megan Elizabeth

Come out to Axiom Gallery to meet the woman who balances her art career and family with endless grace!

Hosted in the middle of Axiom's Online Exclusive Show featuring talented female artist Megan Elizabeth, the artist herself will be holding a discussion of her work, process, and how she balances her creative and busy life. This night is bound to inspire you, empower you, and provide you with beautiful surroundings at the Axiom Gallery.

  • About Megan and her show:

HUES highlights the work of D.C. based artist Megan Elizabeth. From petals to sunsets, Megan’s art draws constant inspiration from the colorful details around her. Not only is she a gifted artist, but she is also an entrepreneur, a wife, and an amazing mother whose beautiful spirit is rivaled only by her colorful and lovely paintings. To her, multitasking isn’t a goal but a necessity as she conquers her artistic career.

In a recent inspiring excerpt from her blog, she states that,

“At an art show in 2018 (while visibly VERY pregnant), a man told me that I should stop having babies because they derail art careers. I was too tired and nauseous to care, but every time I juggle our new baby on my lap while responding to emails I remember that quote and think, “I am going to prove people who think that way wrong.” That’s a funny thing about me, I like to prove people wrong.”

  • In this online exclusive show, her gentle hand and predominantly soft pallet is juxtaposed by her fierce ability to render the viewer in complete surrender to the canvas. Her loose brushwork, portrayals of swirling skies, and effortless rendering of light and shadow prompts viewers to explore the beauty within the piece and within the world around them.

In the words of Megan,

“My paintings are each a memory.

So often, I visit a place and immediately look around and think, “I will paint this moment”. Whether it is a beach scene, beautiful flowers in a tote bag on the subway, or a simple moment walking in nature, I collect memories and turn them into my paintings.

My works reflect an attitude of experimentation and a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency and overlapping of ideas.

Inspiration for all of my artwork comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature, and the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. I absolutely love working as a painter and am constantly exploring new ideas in my work. “

  • HUES: A Showcase of Megan Elizabeth begins August 1st, 2019 and concludes on August 31st, 2019. Axiom Fine Art will be hosting Megan for an Artist Talk in the middle of her exhibit, August 16th.
