MEGALO EXHIBITION - UNITED CONSTRUCTS

What a gorgeous opening event we had last night! United Constructs consists of a new series of etchings and screen printed works by Canberra artist and designer Megan Hinton. Influenced by the Bauhaus design movement, Russian Constructivism and abstraction – Hinton has taken inspiration from the built environment, carefully dissecting each segment, line and shape to create newly constructed compositions of re purposed architectural forms.  It's a colourful, delicious body of work. Make sure you get into Megalo before it closes on 7 April. Find out more about Megan's work HERE.

*Please note that the gallery will be closed over the Easter long weekend 30 March-2 April

MEGALO SAYS CELEBRATE WOMEN

Today is International Women's Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It's also a call to action for accelerating gender parity. 

Today Megalo reflects on our history and the incredible women who have used printmaking as a means to fight for the cause of equality. In particular Megalo would like to acknowledge the early pioneering women of print: Alison Alder; Gaynor Cardew; Deej Fabyc; eX de Medici; Annie Franklin; Sarah Laletin; Kathleen McCann; Franki Sparke; Annie Trevillian; Catrina Vignando; and so many more.
 

MEGALO SAYS #YES!

Canberra says YES! Australia says YES!
Megalo says YES! Outstanding result!!!!

The results of the same-sex marriage survey were announced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today with the yes response affirming that 61.6% of Australians who took part in the survey support marriage equality.

We're sharing this image of 'Stone, scissors, paper', a gorgeous screen print (circa 1971) by Japanese artist A-YO which is held in the collection of the Art Gallery of NSW to celebrate this happy day. The survey is done, it's a win, now we hope that the legislation will go through quickly. Megalo proudly stands in support of social justice, diversity + inclusion, we believe in equality for all.
