DARIEN, Conn. - eMusicWire -- This May, the Geary Gallery of Darien is proud to present the nature-inspired pieces of Ridgefield artist, Meredith Mulhearn in an exhibit titled "Nature. Emotion. Connection. Community." Her mixed-media exhibit runs May 1-29 at the Geary Gallery, located at 576 Boston Post Road in Darien. All are welcome and admission is free.

Meredith Mulhearn was born in Sayre, PA, but grew up in a small town in New Jersey. She began feverishly creating from the moment she could grasp a crayon.

Mulhearn earned a BA in studio art with a minor in art history, from Wake Forest University, and a MA from NYU in art therapy. Mulhearn's time in New York City significantly influenced her focus on the natural world, as she struggled with its absence in the urban environment.

Mulhearn's work reveals the tenuous relationship between man and nature. Mulhearn explains, "Nature has always spoken to me in quiet ways, but now I find there's an inextricable link between me and the natural world that finds its voice in all my work."

Exploring imminent environmental threats, Mulhearn's work knows no boundaries as she employs the most effective media to manifest her message. She utilizes both traditional and unconventional media, and her process for each piece is completely unique. Whether large or small scale, the viewer is immersed, either through inundation or intimacy. Her work often communicates a subtle urgency, juxtaposed against nature's seeming tranquility.

While her art is often suggestive, her commitment to the cause is most certainly literal, and it directly supports conservation initiatives. She blurs the line between art and philanthropy.

In 2019, Mulhearn became a resident artist at RPAC Art Center & Academy in Ridgefield, CT where she continues to practice. Her work is part of multiple private collections, and she is an associate member of Artists for Conservation, the world's leading artist group supporting the environment. Mulhearn is also an exhibiting artist at Rowayton Arts Center and an active member of the New Canaan Society for the Arts and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.

Her mixed-media exhibit runs May 1-29 and her paintings are available for acquisition. All are welcome and admission is free.
