Alice McMahon & Teagan White
Gallery C is proud to announce an exhibition featuring the work of Alice McMahon and Teagan White entitled “flora & fauna: intricate drawings from mother and daughter.”This mother and daughter exhibition is an exploration of figurative, detailed drawings, and illustrations from two Midwestern working artists.
Alice McMahon’s work specializes in symbolist and magic realist figurative drawing. McMahon believes that art depicts the human face and form to be the most compelling images throughout art history. Her work often incorporates the written word and influences from literature. She describes her work as “Noble representations of individual character and also illustrative of the best aspects of our time: bringing together a wealth of influences and recognition of art history and myth.” Originally from Chicago, McMahon studied art at Xavier University and has exhibited nationwide including the Zhou B Art Center, Chicago, Argosy Gallery, Bar Harbor, Maine, and the Saatchi Gallery in London, UK. McMahon currently resides in Galena, Illinois.
Teagan White is a freelance illustrator specializing in intricate drawings of flora and fauna, playful watercolors of animal characters, and illustrated typography. White is interested in “Nature’s subtle, gentle reciprocity and wild, tragic discord, and combines this inspiration with nostalgic colors, decorative arrangements of organic forms and meticulous detail.” Her clients include Simon & Schuster, Wired Magazine, and Disney Hyperion. Originally from Chicago, White resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota where she studied art at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
