CCBC Gallery Featured Artist: Meredith Elder
Paintings on view Tuesday, May 9 through Sunday, May 28
This month in the CCBC Gallery, we’re so excited to feature one of our most creative Creature Comforts staff members, Meredith Elder! Meredith, who has worked at the brewery since our second anniversary (April 2016), graduated from the University of Georgia in December with a major in Advertising and a minor in Art. The artist focused on printmaking and graphic design during school and has since developed this new series of cowboy-inspired paintings, on view for the first time here at the brewery.
A comic book-like arrangement of the canvases aids the careful layering of formal elements– color, pattern, and three-dimensional textures– in linking the series together. Each canvas acts as a comic panel, read through the viewer’s stream of consciousness as prompted by the formal elements. By piecing together illustration, pattern, and poetic quips, the artist intends to challenge the boundaries of “fine art”, creating an mixed media installation that is wholly original.
We're thrilled to be able to spotlight the artwork of one of our very own #creaturecrew and we are so grateful to have Meredith on our staff. In addition to working on our tour staff, she also uses her talents to help us with graphic design work here at the brewery. Cheers to this Creature!
