About the artist
Meg Lubey is an artist from Buffalo, NY, who graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2022 with a BFA in painting and an emphasis in creative writing.
By intertwining traditional painting mediums with more unconventional materials such as spackle, embroidery floss, fabric, and other found objects, Lubey challenges conventions of painting while utilizing both referential image and text. Usually depicted through object and still life, Lubey's work incorporates and embeds memories and connections made during their childhood and adolescence. These chosen experiences exemplify the very human need to connect and effectively communicate with others while exploring all the feelings of grief and love that is attached to being a living, growing person.
Lubey's work has been shown in multiple group exhibitions such as Push and Pull at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, as well as Coveted at Kaiser Gallery and Stopgap at SPACES, in Cleveland, OH. Lubey has also partnered with The LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland to create and organize Ordinary, a queer, collaborative zine that you can find HERE. Most recently, they had their first poetry chapbook, About Cutting Limes and the Moon Being in Half, published by Bottlecap Press. You can find it HERE.
