Sandra Meagher’s work explores states of mind and aspects of experience through figurative and abstract drawings, installation, painting, photography and sculpture.

Although trained as a painter, she favors drawing and the use of charcoal and pastel.  Early work invites the viewer to participate in a narrative moment.  More recent drawings invite a more contemplative response, inviting the viewer to construct their own interpretation of the shapes and lines before them.

Meagher has had some 20 one- and two-person shows and has taken part in many juried and group exhibitions.  Her installation “Diary,” featuring a quilt made of linen, lint and used softener sheets, took first prize at the Katonah Museum’s Tri-state show “Breaking the Rules” in 2001. 

One of five Connecticut artists, Meagher was invited to explore creative interaction in a “Dialogue Group,” which met regularly over a two-year period. The results of their joint venture were exhibited in the Silvermine Art Center’s galleries, and described in the book The Dialogue Project: First Conversations, by Ann Weiner, (Blurb Inc., 2006).
Meagher has received fellowships from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the Vermont Studio Center, and is a member of the Silvermine Guild, Art/Place Gallery, Katonah Museum Artists Association, and Westport Art Center’s Artists Collective, as well as a Life Member of the Art Students League.  She maintains a studio in Port Chester, NY.
