Strata Gallery presents its last Established Member solo exhibition of the year, Pandemic Paintings and Political Protest by New Mexico based artist, Margi Weir. The exhibition opens November 28, with a special reception on December 1, from 5-7pm. The exhibition runs through December 15.
Margi Weir’s paintings, drawings and installation work are centered around her response to the world around her, whether that world is the digital world, as during the pandemic, or the physical world. Weir relies on the juxtaposition of imagery to create meaning with the hope that the viewer will take away a continued questioning of the current events and situations that have been affecting all of us.
Margi Weir stated, “After the years of isolation during the Pandemic, when the interaction with friends, family, and students was mediated by a screen of some sort or other, it is wonderful to be having a solo show, in person, at Strata Gallery. I look forward to sharing the work I did during that period of isolation and to demonstrating how that work relates to my more political work of the past.”
Margi Weir, a recently retired Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, earned her MFA in painting from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA); her MA in painting from New Mexico State University; her BFA in painting from San Francisco Art Institute; and her BA in art history from Wheaton College, Massachusetts. This is Weir’s first solo show in Santa Fe.
