L Ross Gallery’s solo exhibition honoring regional artist Annabelle Meacham opens Friday, May 4, 6-8 pm. Titled The Image of Dreams, the exhibition continues through May 26. Annabelle Meacham’s often surreal paintings are as saturated with humor as with the color her work is known for. Meacham feels art is akin to the discipline of poetry, compressing her joy for life within her beautifully patterned borders. Educated at Florida State University and the Memphis College of Art, Meacham was selected as the 2013 River Arts Festival poster artist and a featured Artist of the Year with the Mississippi Museum of Art in 2011. New York curator Peter Plagens selected Meacham as one of ten artists for the 2009 Mississippi Museum of Art juried invitational. One of her paintings from the exhibition was featured in the Nov 2009 issue of Art in America.
