Originally trained in painting and printmaking, Meg Soper was inspired by the luminosity of silk and the brilliance of glass, and has used these mediums extensively. With silk, she has developed new techniques, employing a variety of formats: stretched and mounted on painted canvas, folding screens, wall hangings, liturgical pieces, and interior design. She creates her glass pieces in layers using a unique method, so that shapes float freely and overlap, opening up a wide range of artistic possibilities.
Meg has worked from her studio in the Washington DC metropolitan area for more than 20 years. She has completed numerous commissions for offices, churches, synagogues, libraries and private collections in Florida, Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Iowa, California, Massachusetts and Washington state. Her work was featured in U.S. Ambassadors’ residences in Seoul, Korea, Warsaw, Poland and Skopje, Macedonia.
Meg has exhibited in several shows, including three solo shows at Bird-in-Hand Gallery, Washington DC, one each at Sunflower Studio/Gallery 1 in Ocracoke, North Carolina and Buckingham Arts Council in Virginia, as well as 2-person and group shows in Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Iowa and Lahore, Pakistan. For the month of October 2015 she participated in a 4 person show at Gallery B in Bethesda, Maryland, sponsored by the Bethesda Urban Partnership.
From 2009-2013 Meg was the Artist-in-Residence at the Tower Companies’ award-winning, LEED Platinum certified Corporate Headquarters in Rockville, MD.
Meg particularly enjoys working with clients, incorporating their ideas and specifications, whether for a single piece of art or a larger project. She is available for new commissions.
