Inside Outside Windowphilia by Meridith McNeal
Window Paintings by ART YARD artists.

The Way We See It is an exhibition of paintings by the artist Meridith McNeal in conjunction with paintings inspired by her work and created by participants in the ART YARD Summer Session 2021. Through a multitude of ways of looking through and at windows, both open and closed, the exhibition is dedicated to windows and their metaphors. With her series Inside Outside Windowphilia Meridith McNeal continues to explore the terrifying idea of being on one side or the other of incarceration. These ink and watercolor life-size paintings play with reflections and layers of external and internal space.
As the co-founder with Dennis Buonagura of ART YARD, an organization that offers art education for kids, teens and adults, Ms. McNeal has a passionate commitment to bringing the pleasure of creativity through art making to people in underserved communities.

FiveMyles is proud to show their work together with Meridith McNeal’s wonderful window paintings.
