Maggie receives grant funding from
the British Government to exhibit at Artexpo Las Vegas
Maggie, who is currently located in New York for 6 months, received funding from
the U.K. government, Trade and Investment to exhibit at the first
Artexpo in Las Vegas. Not surprisingly, Maggie's first exhibit in the U.S.
was recognized as an “emerging artist to note” by the Consulate in
New York and at the Artexpo as her abstract landscapes created visceral tremors
in the art world. Her work was well received on the West Coast, with particular
interest from Sony Pictures Entertainment and several L.A. galleries. Since
the show she has committed to exhibit with WWA gallery in Culver City,
LA where her work will be shown in early summer 2008.
