Join us on Saturday, May 14, at 1:00pm at the Branigan Cultural Center for an artist talk with Meg G. Freyermuth entitled, “Visions of Our Monument.” Freyermuth will discuss the inspirations for her work and some of her artistic process, guiding visitors through her works on display in the gallery.
Meg G. Freyermuth is an artist from Las Cruces, New Mexico, who paints portraits of wilderness areas, particularly in the southwestern United States. Freyermuth has been a serious artist since 2003, and received her BFA in Painting from New Mexico State University in 2009. One of Freyermuth’s most recent accomplishments was being chosen as the first Artist-In-Residence for the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument, a residency she completed in September 2015. Freyermuth works to highlight the importance of environmental conservation, historical preservation, and access to art in the modern age.
