Artist Margaret Mee exhibits at Berkhamsted's Open Door
With special guest artist Isabel Mee
A community space in Berkhamsted is hosting an exhibition by Chesham artist Margaret Mee and her six-year-old daughter, Isabel.
Open Door will be home to ‘Collaborations’ until October 14, the exhibition features bold and colourful pieces of animals and landscapes, and is about enjoying life, having fun and valuing time spent together.
Margaret said: "Whenever my daughter sees me creating artwork she wants to join in.
"She finds my studio an exciting and mysterious place to be, with all its many different materials and media to experiment with. I want to let her know that the artwork she creates has equal importance."
In the other half of the exhibition space, ‘Reverberations’ is a collection of Margaret’s drawings and digital artworks focusing on music and performance.
Margaret added: "Many of my drawings concern power and force, capturing strength as well as the beauty of the human form and the sculptural shapes of the instruments.
"The close interaction of figures with the instruments creates a powerful intimacy and tension."
Margaret Mee’s formal training was in ceramics, and sculpture has always been an inspiration for her art.
