Megan Connors has been using the traditional genre of observational still-life painting, exploring the painting of “things” to comment on diverse aspects of contemporary culture, such as health trends, gender, entertainment and consumption. With painterly attention to detail, she explores how palette, rendering, composition, light, and perspective can impact content and how we perceive objects.
Megan Connors, a native of Cape Breton has been living in Truro, NS for the past 12 years. After 25 years working as a health care professional, Connors decided to go to “art school”. She is a recent graduate of NSCAD University (2017) with a BFA with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History. In her final year she received the Robert Pope Foundation Scholarship for Painting and the Arthur Lismer Award for Academic Excellence. Her graduate show, “Bread and Circuses” was exhibited at the Anna Leonowens Gallery, Halifax, NS and the Marigold Cultural Centre, Truro, NS. She has just moved into her own studio space in Truro and looks forward to starting her new career as a visual artist.
