Blue Lobby Exhibit | Megan Reed
Reed's sculptures refer to stone circles, the colors of urban architecture, Cyclopean rock formations, cairns and the vernacular of ancient and modern monuments. Reed’s background in theater moreover, renders her groups of sculptures as characters of sorts to invite the viewer to participate in their performative presence. The works thus aim for a transformational community-generated experience. Reed earned her MFA in Painting from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA, where she was the recipient of the Graduate Painting Teaching Fellowship and the Rex Ray Material Support Award. She also holds an MA from Southern Illinois University and a BFA from New York University. She has taught at California College of the Arts, Diablo Valley College and Southern Illinois University. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at MASS MoCA, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Vermont Studio Center and at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, where she created an installation as part of the campus's permanent art collection. Her work has appeared twice in New American Paintings, in Vogue Magazine, and the San Francisco Chronicle. She has been included in group shows at Harper's Los Angeles, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, Berkeley Art Center, MASS Moca, and Johansson Projects, among others. Her most recent solo show was held at Halsey McKay Gallery, in East Hampton, NY. For further information visit meganreed.net or contact Helen Varola Advisory at helenvarola@gmail.com.
