Artists Talk Movies: Harold and Maude

Are you in the mood for an existentially dark, yet lighthearted rom-com about about wonderfully mature women who’s vivacious energy seduces a privilege youth? Us too! We popped the cork of some “organic” wine while talking to Virginia-based artist Margaret Meehan about one of her favorite movies Harold and Maude, which is a direct inspiration for many of her artworks. While watching this film, we couldn’t help but fall in love with Maude as she shows us that “if we want to be free, be free” and how the act of living can be intoxicatingly life affirming. RIP (Resist in Peace) Maude (Ruth Gordon) xoxo . ATM on Apple Podcasts

Dallas Museum of Art Acquires Sculpture

Conduit Gallery is pleased to announce the acquisition of Margaret Meehan’s sculpture, Sad Songs Say So Much (2020) by the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) for its permanent collection.
Margaret Meehan’s Sad Songs Say So Much offers a poignant summation of the artist’s wide studio and research-based practice. Originally included in Meehan’s February 2021 solo exhibition After Laughter at Conduit Gallery, Sad Songs Say So Much was one of a series of terracotta and mixed media sculptures that was created during the global Covid-19 pandemic, the United States’ recent political unrest and a reawakening of the Black Lives Matter movement born from outcries against anti-black violence and systemic racism.
