In May:

Throughout her life, Meghan Riordan has always been drawn to nature and the artistic aspects of the natural world. For the last 7 years, she has dedicated that passion to create works of art that best interpret her experiences. Her newest collection that will be on display at the Adams County Arts Council in May of 2022 is entitled “Cosmic Nature.”
Meghan’s art is filled with bright, colorful, and whimsical illustrations done in a variety of ink, watercolors, and art marker on watercolor paper and other mixed media. Many of her creations are inspired by years of hiking excursions. Areas of Pennsylvania such as Michaux State Park, Ricketts Glen, and Caledonia are her muse. Travels to Montana, North Carolina, California and Maine have all energized and captured these artworks. Much time is spent gazing over lakes and landscapes or investigating the forest floor.
Meghan also uses spiritual symbols like the mandala to help facilitate an almost meditative state during her creative process. Creating patterns in a sometimes zen-tangle style also becomes a process in this “meditation.”
All of Meghan Riordan’s works are original pieces created by hand. She is a self-taught artist who has resided in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania her entire life. She is a Mount St. Mary’s graduate and currently is employed by the Center for Youth and Community Development. She lives with her two children Jasper and Isaac.
