Meghann Meadowcroft art exhibit opens Sept. 27 in the Hilltop Bistro

September 22, 2016

WHITEHORSE—An exhibit by emerging Yukon artist Meghann Meadowcroft will open Tuesday, September 27 in the Hilltop Bistro at Yukon College. The opening is from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. with the artist in attendance. There will be hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.

The exhibit features a selection of Meadowcroft’s paintings inspired by the Yukon’s natural landscape—from colourful fireweed to blossoming trees and dynamic northern lights. Meadowcroft began painting as a personal therapeutic process and never expected to find a market for her work. Since 2012 she has sold over 300 of her paintings.

“Art is a wonderful opportunity for self-regulation and discovery. I find therapy, healing and peace when I paint. It is very humbling to have so many people enjoy what I create,” said Meadowcroft.

The exhibit runs until December and all paintings at the Bistro are for sale. Yukon College does not receive a commission on any work sold in the Hilltop Bistro.

Meghann Meadowcroft grew up in Ontario and moved to Yukon in 2010. She is currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Education degree program at Yukon College and hopes to bring her artistic side into her work as an educator. Her work can be found on display in Whitehorse at the Chilkoot Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Centre and Atmosphere-Interior Finishing.
