This solo exhibition of Coyle’s artwork featured her portrait, animal, landscape, and cityscape collages. “A Palette of Paper – Collages by Megan Coyle” focused on Coyle’s unique technique of creating collages that strongly resemble paintings, while using magazine strips or cut paper for her color palette.

The show included several new collages as well as older works. A total of around thirty collages were on display, showcasing Coyle’s interpretation of a variety of familiar subjects.

The Gallery’s Description of the Show:

If you can imagine how scissors plying through everyday magazines can give an outcome of surprising and masterful art, then you might imagine the incredible collages of Megan Coyle. Working in classic art genres, Megan breaks down her images piece by piece, evolving them from bits of magazines into whole new, amazing compositions.
