This event has ended.

Margaret Withers’ artwork explores the idea of lost memories. In her creative process, she asks the question, “If untethered from past memories, what would the past recreated look like?” Her paintings recreate a world unlike our own, yet familiar. Filled with lyrical creatures, colors and movement, her paintings have been described as poetic, in part because they engage the viewer’s mind in imagination and play.

Withers' was born in Austin, Texas and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She employs repeating layers of pigment and resin, layered with oil painted dots and lyrical forms. She then attaches either clay heads, string, or painted vellum; or she cuts holes in the canvas and sews in pen and ink drawings.

Withers' has shown locally and internationally and was recently selected to appear in the New American Paintings Northeastern edition #92, which was judged by Laura Hoptman, former Chief Curator of the New Museum’s recent show “Brion Gysin -Dream Machine.” Withers received her BA from Texas A&M University.
