Meghan Brady (b. Connecticut) is a painter whose bold and colorful abstract works blur the line between painting, sculpture and installation. Her imagery includes references to vessels, the human form, her daughters’ artwork, and American crafts, while her large-scale collaged works are in direct conversation with the spaces in which they are made. Recent two-person and solo exhibitions include TSA (Brooklyn, NY), Perimeter Gallery (Brunswick, ME), Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects (New York, NY), Icon Contemporary (Brunswick, ME), and Coleman Burke Gallery (New York, NY). She has been included in numerous recent group exhibitions including the Portland Museum of Art Biennial, and recently completed a residency at TSA Brooklyn. Brady received her BA from Smith College and her MFA from Boston University in 2002. She currently lives and works in coastal Maine.
