Meghan Spiro’s exhibit for October’s Second Saturday was pretty powerful.

The first I learned of it was in the grocery store checkout line, which is where most important information is traded and discussed. What stuck with me was not the subject matter, but the responses she said she got from women she told about the project, which was an autobiographical visual and poetic exploration of the physical abuse she suffered during her marriage.

Therefore, we are lifting some of her photos from the show and publishing them here for more to see. At least one of them, “A Bloody Beautiful Blooming” shown here, was featured earlier in February 2019 at the the local gallery Catalyst during their “Cycles” exhibit.

In order to help others who may harbor similar feelings Meghan experienced, this article not only displays select images of the art, but includes a deep dive into how she created the art.
