A reception for the artist will be held Thursday, February 5 from 5-7 p.m. in the Gallery. Ms. Hinton will speak about her work on Thursday, February 5 at 2:15 p.m. in the Theatre in Brooks.Ms. Hinton’s paintings and other works, which have been influenced by her love for travel and the ocean, have been exhibited throughout North America including at the Tao Water Gallery, Provincetown, Mass., the Old Spouter Gallery in Nantucket Island, Mass., and the Carver Hill Gallery in Rockland, Maine.
She has been awarded artist in residencies from the Women’s Studio Workshop, the Vermont Studio Center, and Nantucket Island School of Design and her work is included in the permanent collections of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and the Artists Association of Nantucket.
Linder Gallery Director James Lansing said he was impressed with Ms. Hinton’s work the moment he saw it while serving as head curator at the Egan Institute on Nantucket Island. “There are many excellent painters represented in the numerous galleries on Nantucket. It is easy for painters to get lost, but Megan’s abstractions caught my attention instantly,” James said. “She is adept at capturing the atmospheric feeling of life along the coast, without resorting to the basic sentimentality often associated with the shore area.”
