SAMA member, Meghan Walsh, creates organically shaped stone and mixed media mosaic sculptures that appear to twist and turn, as if trying to slide right off the wall. These hand-formed objects are made in partnership with the stone, capturing and encapsulating a sense of past experience, like glaciers or frozen time capsules. Walsh describes the works, which strongly reference landscape, as “primordial connectors or archives of wisdom.” They speak of our quickly changing world, tapping into a deep historical perspective as they point out the dignity and beauty found in the communion of unexpected objects. She most recently exhibited at Emerson Gallery in McLean, VA September – November 2019: An Fharraige Fheargach: The Fiery Sea Works by Meghan Walsh.
SAMA members will remember Walsh’s Best in Show, Mosaic Arts International 2019, award-winning piece, Mushin ©2018. She has dual careers in both fine art and architecture, and has been exhibiting her mosaic work nationally and internationally for over 20 years. Walsh received a Master of Architecture at the University of Michigan and a BFA at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
