First Friday, August 3 // Ways Up the Mountain by Megan Larmie
Friday August 3, 2018 | 6 – 9 pm | Live music at 6:15 and 7:15
The Machine Shop presents Ways Up the Mountain, an exhibition of new work by Megan Larmie and First Friday event featuring live music from Xanthe Alexis.
Megan Larmie concludes three months of dedicated work as The Machine Shop Artist in Residence with Ways Up the Mountain; a one person exhibition of distinct, process driven, works of abstraction. Inspired by the dynamic range of character in nature Larmie focuses on the emotive and distinct relationships of space, texture and color.
“Larmie rapidly applies multiple layers of acrylic and resin across the surface [of her paintings] to create a visual language that accentuates space and chromatic relationships. Capitalizing on color density, hue, opacity and transparency she develops complex and tranquil experiences with a meditative quality.” — B. Heidmous
The Machine Shop partners with the Palmer Land Trust in the presentation of “Ways Up the Mountain”. The nature centric ethos of the exhibition promotes the conservation of natural lands in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. The city wide initiative, “Forever Yours, The Land”™, supports the work of 60+ local artists exhibiting work that questions, enhances and promotes the experience of humans in nature.
