Megan Holmes, MS, ATR-BC, Clinical Coordinator and Adjunct Professor for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at FSU, is also an Artist in Residence with the Thomasville Center for the Arts. As Artist in Residence
she had recently produced a body of work for BIG MOOD, a WALL SPACE exhibition. BIG MOOD is an active search for joy through art. Through bold, colorful pieces created with a playful intuition, Megan brings us on her journey. “The work in this exhibition is about perseverance. Showing up, imperfectly, to start again and again. A labor of love that offers refuge and protection against despair.”
WALL SPACE is designed intentionally to bring emerging, contemporary artists and designers into a community space exposing the community to a rotating body of new work. Thoughtful making and creative exchange are at the heart of WALL SPACE programming. The curated pop-up exhibits inhabit the walls of Grassroots Coffee Company, where they can be exposed to 60,000 + patrons. The installations are transitional, separated from a formal gallery space, and accessible to a diverse audience. This unique setting allows artists to test ideas, initiate community exchange, and develop professional practices. Thomasville Center for the Arts works to support emerging artists with an opportunity to develop both their art practice and professional goals.
