Photographs by Meghan D’Arcy

FEBRUARY 5 - JULY 20, 2019

The seventh installment of our Youth in Focus series features the work of Meghan D’Arcy, a 17 year-old student who attends Spruce Creek High School. She came to the museum’s attention through her continued involvement with our educational programs over the past several years and has quickly established herself as a talented portrait and lifestyle photographer.

A strategic balance of color, contrasting tones and strong compositions are a hallmark of Meghan’s style, along with a profound understanding of her subject matter. Her artistic intentions and stylistic choices are reflected in the scenes she so carefully orchestrates and presents to the viewer. Her subjects don’t simply blend into the background, they subtly alter them, challenging the lines and planes of the surrounding architecture with their own physicality.
