Meg Atkinson
Sunset at Waverly Park

2016

About

It was Picasso who said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." While her work in the exhibition Child's Play is not meant specifically to capture the exact meaning of this quotation, she believes in its efficacy at getting at the root of what makes making art compelling. Time spent in the studio is as close a return to childhood as she can imagine. There is nothing else like it; time falls away. The playfulness that emerges in her imagery is in part an expression of joy. Meg Atkinson is an artist and art educator. She has exhibited in the New York and tri-state area, including shows at ODETTA, Morgan Lehman Gallery and Storefront Ten Eyck. Meg has also contributed to the blog, Painters on Paintings, and has had fiction published in BookCourt’s literary magazine, Cousin Corinne’s Reminder. Meg lives and works in Brooklyn.
