Megan Van Wagoner: Comforts of Home

Megan Van Wagoner:  Comforts of HomePublic Reception: Sunday, November 2, 2-4 pm
Van Wagoner’s sculptural work captures moments in a narrative and expresses them as artifacts that reminisce weekends on dairy farms and amongst rolling fields on corn. In this series of current works made from steel, cast aluminum, cast iron, blown glass, clay, and other materials, Comforts of Home reflects the changing value placed on land, agricultural practices and food in our culture.

The Library Gallery at Montpelier Arts Center showcases local artists selected by a juror. John Paradiso, program manager at the 39th Street Gallery and facility manager of the Gateway Arts Center in the Prince George’s County Gateway Arts District, served as the juror for the 2014-2015 Library Gallery Competition.
