Or…check out what Fantasy Author Sandy Lender did Saturday
After picking up my author friend Tina Murray, I picked up my sea turtle supplies in Bonita for this year's nesting patrol and we boogied our way up to Ft. Myers for Megan Kissinger's opening reception for her current show "One Woman's Art" at the William North Gallery in the Gannon's Antiques and Art Mall. I totally recommend the show to anyone who appreciates lovely paintings and nature scenes.
Megan is fabulous. She's the artist who created the map of Onweald that you see in the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods and the supporting chapbook What Choices We Made. And you'll be seeing it again in the rest of the series…as soon as those hit the shelves! Her work at the gallery this month is acrylic on canvas, but she also works in watercolors, creates award-winning scultpures, gracefully handles other-media-I-can't-think-of-right-now-because-I'm-in-a-rush-to-go-meet-a-friend-from-Minnesota (I blush), and is able to cross over into the graphic design realm. That's a quality you don't always see in professional artists...yet she's got it. I say "Megan rocks."
If you get a chance to visit Southwest Florida before April 30, you can see Megan's recent works at the William North Gallery. If not, she's also going to be highlighted among some other artists at FGCU's upcoming show at a place I can't remember. Megan, if you're checking in, please give us the details in the comments!
You can also find Megan on Facebook. TONS of info there.
