Juried by Paul Efstathiou, Director of Contemporary Art, Hollis Taggart, NY

Best in Show at Stamford's Loft Artists Association 5th annual tri-state juried exhibition

I am honored to have been awarded Best in Show at LAA's show, Relishing Restraint, curated by Krista Scenna, owner of groundfloor gallery in Brooklyn.  My piece, "When the Bough Breaks," uses the rocking chair where I nursed my two sons.  The chair, now seatless, represents the joys and sorrows of motherhood. I stitched the dates of the births and miscarriages of my children on a linen draped across the chair arms.

Image:  "Peggy's Garden," 38" x 38" encaustic, by Meg Tweedy
    “Peggy’s Garden” is an ode to my recently deceased mother, an artist and farm girl who embraced, nature, color and life itself with passion and determination.  Employing encaustics to create colors and shapes, I alternated surfaces of wood and fabric, painting and mono printing to contrast textures as I played with size, color and repetition. Images of Peggy, some half hidden, allow the seasons of her life to mimic the seasons of this garden.
