Sandra Meigs speaks on an overview of her work and about her new installation, Room for Mystics (with Christopher Butterfield).

Following the talk, please join us for a public opening celebration for Room for Mystics in Walker Court.

For over 35 years Sandra Meigs has created vivid, immersive, and enigmatic paintings that combine complex narratives with comic elements. She derives the content of her work from her own personal experiences, and develops these to create visual metaphors related to the psyche. Meigs will provide an overview of her work and speak about her new installation, Room for Mystics.

A recipient of the 2015 Gershon Iskowitz Prize and a Governor General’s award in 2015, Sandra Meigs’ exhibition history is extensive, with over 40 solo and 60 group exhibitions in Canada and abroad. Solo exhibitions include Mercer Union and The Power Plant, Toronto, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Musée Regional de Rimouski, Carlton University Art Gallery, Ottawa, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver and the Musée des Beaux arts de Montreal.
