WEST COLUMBIA (Nov. 23, 2016) – Meg McLean’s artist’s retrospective at Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community in West Columbia opens Dec. 2 and continues through Jan. 31. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Enter at the Guignard Mansion or at McDowell.

Blythewood artist Meg McLean has been an award-winning painter since the mid 1970s. Her work has been selected for numerous juried shows and traveling exhibits and is included in many private collections.

This Still Hopes exhibit will include representative samples from each decade of the artist’s drawings and paintings, beginning with the years following graduation from USC through this year.

“Whether the subject matter is flowers in a window or desks lining a hallway, I make use of bold color, repetition of pattern, and the dramatic effects of sunlight and shadow,” McLean said. “The translucence of flower petals, the delicate veins in a leaf, the vivid colors of blossoms and the shine on waxy foliage are prominent elements.”
