Megan Mosholder is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with an MFA in painting. She has received numerous awards from institutions such as the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, the Haven Foundation and the Paul J. Smith Award of Excellence. Her diverse exhibition history spans multiple countries including an installation in Sydney, Australia (2017), a body of site-specific work that speaks of the lasting impression a fully immersive, multi-sensory artwork can leave on a viewer.
Megan is also a burn survivor. In September 2018, Megan flipped her car and the gas tank ignited with the artist trapped inside. She was burned over 60 percent of her body and although her accident does not define who Megan is as an artist, she cannot deny that it has influenced her work in a number of ways, one of which is her mobility. Regardless, Megan continues to reach for the sky through her large-scale installations and works with a crew of assistants to bring these works to life. Megan currently resides in Atlanta, GA where she is a Professor at Kennesaw State University and an Artist in Residence at the Skylark.

Water captivates Honor Petrie creatively, her mind is bewitched to its visually powerful appearance. She uses water as a metaphor and medium to explore the fragile relationship between human perception and nature. Employing the effects of chromostereopsis with water, her installations present a celestial environment where light, colour and space melt together — a coming together of minds and nature’s elements.
“Water swirls, twists, distorts. The smooth black liquid moves quick. Immersing all in its path. It swells and disintegrates with immense weight, crashing and tearing down all in its power. Watching, the mind begins to feel the water’s movements, following its ever changeable patterns. The mind tries to connect as one yet is refused. Each rise and fall reveals the mind’s powerlessness and vulnerability. The surrounding space begins to encircle the body, submerging it. Isolated and disconnected, the mind transforms the water into a torrent, dominating its environment, overwhelming any sense of space, leaving behind a strange and anonymous landscape.”
