The Nature Art Gallery presents, "Nature's Glory" artwork by Joan Meade. The show opens Friday February 1 and runs through February 24th. Gallery reception Saturday February 2, from 2:00 until 4:00 pm at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

Statement: My passion is for the natural world, and I am especially drawn to water, rocks and trees in their many manifestations. I find the medium that best conveys these wonders is sculptural acrylics, as the heavy texture gives a three dimensional quality to the work. My inspiration comes from my travels and my imagination.

Biography: Joan studied art and architecture at Cornell University, and art at Colorado College. Her first exhibitions were in Tunisia and Washington, DC as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Joan has exhibited widely across the Southeast and in New Mexico, including the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC. She recently exhibited in an international juried show in CA, and has participated in a national juried show at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, Annapolis, MD, two juried NC-SC shows in Charlotte, and numerous regional exhibitions. She was honored to serve as Artist in Residence at Acadia National Park in Maine for the month of July 2011.
