Art Against AIDS... Maggie Meiners
I met Maggie Meiners at an Artist's reception some five or six years ago. Since then, I have become one of Maggie's biggest fans. Not only is she an amazing women but she is also an amazingly talented Artist. I have included her work in a juried exhibition or two... produced a two-person collaborative show with the very talented, Jennifer Bisbing, and produced a recent solo exhibition at Gallery 180 titled "Childhood Contemplations". Her work is intriguing.
The above image is a piece titled "Three Bands", from Meiners' "Extractions" series. It will be available on Live Auction at The Art Against AIDS benefit, this Thursday at the River East Art Center. This piece comes from a powerful series of black and white abstractions, which can be seen on Meiner's web site: maggiemeiners.com. While there, take a look at the "Childhood Contemplation" series... They're pretty wonderful too.
