             Born in Fayetteville, Ark., artist Megan Chapman received her B.F.A. in painting from the University of Oregon and has shown her work all over the world for the past 17 years. Chapman strives to tell stories through her mixed media artwork. The exhibit Ghosts of the Past Exposed tells the story of her family genealogy throughout Scotland. The hero of her story is Chapman’s great great great grandfather, Murdoch Campbell, born in Scotland in 1784. In his lifetime, Murdoch immigrated to Arkansas and died as an Arkansas farmer. Chapman says, “I am then born in Arkansas one hundred and twenty years later, not knowing that I would return to Scotland to make art for his ghost.” The blue in the images represent water, air and dreams. The map lines connect the figures to their homeland as well as to each other. “This is my story and theirs but it is also yours and ours…” says Chapman. Come out and experience the artwork and the history that lies within Ghosts of the Past Exposed by Megan Chapman.

This event is co-sponsored by the University Programs Anne Kittrell Art Gallery Committee. For more information on this event, contact University Programs Gallery Chair Derick McCollum at upart@uark.edu or 479-575-5255 or Chas Thompson at ct003@uark.edu.
