Megan Gray Landscapes: Connection

Art Alliance of Monmouth County

33 Monmouth St
Red Bank, NJ 07701
USA

Megan Gray’s landscapes are heavily influenced by her time spent in nature which inspires, calms, and fills her with gratitude. She takes those feelings back to the studio where she translates them into the paintings you see in the windows of the Art Alliance during the month of February. Gray sees her landscape paintings as a way to connect with the world around us and also to connect with ourselves, to calm our minds, but also to challenge ourselves. Gray states that “I only hope that my paintings act as reminders to be present, and to connect with the beauty in the world around us.” In the main Gallery Gray will jury work on the themes Circles, Spheres, and other Round Things and Field of Dreams. These works will be on display February 1, 2020 through March 3, 2020 at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701. Join us at the opening reception 6-8pm, Saturday February 1, 2020. Come by then, or during gallery hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 12 to 4 p.m., to look at the new art, take a break during your day in Red Bank, and pick up a class and studio schedule. Exhibitions at the Art Alliance change monthly. Six exhibitions a year are for members of the Art Alliance only. Three exhibitions, including the upcoming 28th Annual Juried Exhibition, are open to members and non-members. Every January, the Art Alliance hosts an invitational show, featuring work by notable area artists. During the summer months, the programming is open to artists selected by the Art Alliance’s curators who undertake their own shows. Membership in the Art Alliance is open to visual artists at any skill level and to art lovers. Membership fee is $40 per year; $25 for students age 25 and under with ID.
