Uncharted Wonders Solo Exhibition Meaghan Crow

Uncharted Wonders - Solo Exhibition by Meaghan Crow

Staying Creative Gallery, March 3 - April 2, 2023

Opening: March 3, 5-8pm. 

“Uncharted Wonders” showcases a selection of Meaghan Crow’s surreal acrylic paintings. Whimsical, wacky, and wonderful, Crow's unique twists on reality create new imaginative scenes and creatures for the mind and eyes to ponder. This collection of works shows a range of Crow’s paintings from over the past few years. Each acts as a window into another place or dimension, taking elements of the familiar and combining them to create the unknown. She hopes that her work lights up viewers' imaginations, and transports them out of their day-to-day lives into a moment of wonder. 

Adventure Clothing Mural

In late January 2023 Crow was commissioned to paint a mural at the front of Adventure Clothing after their window was smashed. Read about it in this story by Victoria Buzz of turning lemons into lemonade!
