Exciting News: I'm now an Artist Member of LAAA & Editor of Fabrik Magazine

Megan Frances Abrahams: Fleur de Lys I (en rose)
In the shockingly long interval since I last posted here, a lot of exciting things have happened. Most important, I started a new series of paintings exploring the fleur de lys as a point of departure for composition. The fleur de lys is an elegant ancient symbol that has always had resonance for me. In my interpretation, it represents man's idealistic desire to imprint his view on nature and the environment. For me the symbol also has personal meaning. It refers back to my time as a young art student in France, where the fleur de lys is a prevalent motif. I'm also thrilled to announce I recently was accepted as a new artist member of the Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) / Gallery 825, a fabulous LA art organization that helps emerging artists establish their careers. Here's a link to my page on the LAAA website.

Fabrik Issue 34
In other important news - I'm now the managing editor of Fabrik Magazine, a quarterly LA-based print art publication, distributed in galleries and museums around Los Angeles - and available by subscription. The next issue will be launched at Fabrik Expo and Photo Independent, two LA art fairs produced by Fabrik Media - April 21 to 23 at The Reef. Fabrik is an LA-centric magazine focusing on contemporary art and design with a sophisticated international flair. I'm delighted to be playing a role in shaping this wonderful - and dare I say - cutting edge publication.

I'm also still writing for Art Ltd. Magazine and other publications, and trying to juggle all of the deadlines so I can still make painting a priority. On a more somber note, I'm also struggling to do what I can to resist - and maintain my equanimity - in the face of the new harsh political reality we're confronting in this country today.
