Megan Mosholder was born in Columbus, Ohio and is a conceptual artist that is interested in operating within the real world setting of the social-political landscape. Her work can be described as three-dimensional drawings and indirect paintings, two bodies of work that directly inform one another. Megan’s installations and paintings are inspired by the location in which they are installed, artworks that encourage the viewer to appreciate spaces for what they are but also examine their hidden meanings.
Mosholder received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from The Ohio State University and a MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in November of 2012. Her exhibition history includes an installation in Lacoste, France, 2011, a body of work that speaks of the lasting impression a place of beauty can leave on an individual. She recently presented her thesis body of work, A Tale of Two Bridges, an exhibition that explored old conversations about city planning, race and power, older histories, and the more current social and political climate in Savannah, GA. Presently, Megan resides in Brooklyn, New York.
