Megan Hinton

Open Studio: Thursday, May 23, 6:00–9:30 p.m. Free - RSVP

Local resident artist Megan Hinton is an abstract painter and visual artist based on Cape Cod.  Hinton will give an artist talk to present and discuss the work she creates during her time in the Barn, to be followed by an audience Q&A and then an evening of music and live projections. During her residency, Hinton plans to paint interior and exterior views of the Hawthorne Barn, aiming to capture the subtleties and vignettes that give the place its character. Through nocturnal projections of her work that incorporate historical photographic references, she hopes to use painting as a way of joining past and contemporary experiences of the Hawthorne Barn and its legacy.

Megan Hinton, a published art writer, educator, and avid traveler, has been exhibiting her work in New England and beyond for over fifteen years. Currently an MFA candidate at Mills College in Oakland, California, she also holds degrees from Ohio Wesleyan University, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and New York University. Megan has been awarded numerous artist residencies in the United States, France, and Belgium, as well as three local Massachusetts Cultural Council grants. Her paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and the Artists Association of Nantucket.
