A donation to the Charlottesville High School Orchestra, who every four years takes the whole group on an adventure to play in a distant county, this year they are going to Ireland in June. This is my third time to paint a (dysfunctional) violin, which they collect during the four years. They are being shown at our Charlottesville Downtown Mall store windows for the next month, then they will be bid on through https://betterworldcollective.com/
Meg West went to Philadelphia College of Art, majored in Graphic Design, and minored in Painting. After working for several years as a graphic designer, in 2000, she started painting again full time.
West paints as a localist, focusing her painting in Albemarle and surrounding
Counties, as well as Skyline Drive and The Blue Ridge Parkway.
Meg paints every day and enjoys the rhythm and momentum that comes with a steady flow of painting. The act of painting is what is important-enjoying the feeling of being connected to the environment, herself and the painting.
