Wishing everyone a lovely summer and I hope that you can join me for some upcoming events. Also, a little update of what I will be working on in the studio.
Now that I have finished my series of paintings, "Conceptual Interpretations of Family", I will be working on my next project called "Scarecrow"; a commentary on social issues as seen through my experiences and vision as a professional artist, millennial, and independent woman. Now more than ever, I feel the need to express the American (and really global) zeitgeist, and the expanding Diaspora of the world. I am collaborating on this project with Erin O'Leary (Erin O Photo), an extremely talented and equally passionate photographer. The subjects will include figures and interior scenes that convey conceptual and evocative responses to the social climate we live in.
Join us at the South Shore Art Center Friday, July 15th from 6-8 PM for the opening of their "Blue Ribbon Members' Show". My piece "Self Portrait in a Blue Dress" will be on display through August 21st.
For the month of August about 20 of my pieces will be hanging in Hingham at Diana Aveni's Framing Concepts Gallery. Stop by during open hours (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday 10-6, Tuesday 10-8, and Sunday 10-5). Opening reception TBA
Margaret Hart will be part of a dual exhibit in Ethiopia.
Diasporic Domestic opens June 17th, 2016, at the Ansi Gallery in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This exhibition runs for 3 weeks and features work by American artist Margaret Hart and Canadian artist Gabriel Deerman. This two person exhibition features Hart's Dreaming Metal collages and a short video work titled Liquid Metal and Deerman's Legion (Magic Broom Series). Hart's works explore issues of gender and post-humanism through the conceptual lens of Donna Haraway's cyborg, while Deerman's series uses the disastrous North American Pine Beetle outbreak as a springboard for an exploration into the entangled and sprawling problems unbridled capitalism has unleashed on the planet in the time of the Anthropocene.

Her latest body of work depicts narrative interior scenes. Each piece has a specific story that is conveyed through symbolism, and thoughtfully placed objects and compositional elements. Relatable themes such as addiction, divorce, loss, relationships, and spirituality are shown through my perspective as a millennial.
