Born in 1974, Meghan Scanlon was raised in Connecticut and received her BA from Eugene Lang College (NYC, NY) in 1996. An award-winning visual artist, Meghan began exhibiting her work in 1995. In June 2000, her work was included in a two-person exhibition at Focal Point Gallery (NYC, NY). Her delightfully saucy photos have appeared in shows at the Alternative Museum (NYC, NY); Gallery 13 (Danbury, CT); and the University Gallery (Bridgeport, CT). In addition, Meghan’s work has manifested in a variety of books and magazines, most recently in a fashion editorial for the Italian magazine, Io Donna, published by Rizzoli, and on 12 book covers for Masquerade Books.
An honorary Flux member of 6 years, Meghan has participated in Flux events ranging from fundraiser parties to Thursday salons, where her most recent double-exposure, color portrait experiments have found much praise and revilement.
