Maureen Cavanaugh

MAUREEN CAVANAUGH, a Nebraska native and Brooklyn based artist, studied painting in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Cavanaugh works with different types of media including paper collage, wire drawings, and paintings. Her paintings are built up of light layers with oil paint to create a washed down effect, setting figures in both abstract and interior environments. Cavanaugh had solo shows with the former 31GRAND gallery in New York. Group exhibitions include:  “Everything Must Go,” Casey Kaplan, New York, “Talk Show” and “Turning Over a New Leaf” at Edward Thorpe Gallery, New York, and “Contemporary Painting,” Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine (curated by Alex Katz). Cavanaugh recently held a solo exhibition at Sister Garage Project, Los Angeles, California and will be included in the upcoming “Dead in August on the LILAC,” SITE95, New York. Her work is part of the permanent collections at the Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska and Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla, California. photo: Machaela Cavanaugh
