Wellfleet artist Megan Hinton brings the region of Brittany, France to Preservation Hall this Summer 2016. In the fall of 2015 Hinton was awarded an artist residency to live and work at La Vignette, a stone cottage and atelier on the grounds of La Maison de la Grande Vigne in Dinan, France. La Maison was the former residence of well known 20th Century French painter Yvonne Jean-Haffen, who bequeathed her home to the municipality of Dinan after she died in 1993. Jean-Haffen ensured that La Vignette house international artists to stay and seek inspiration from the dynamic landscape and people of Brittany. The main house was left as a museum. During her stay Hinton executed numerous watercolor and gouache paintings on site and in the studio depicting the region. Four of Megan’s watercolors were acquired by La Musée de Jean-Haffen for its permanent collection. Since her return to Wellfleet she is referencing the work made during the residency to make large scale oil paintings. The paintings convey the memory and transformation of the original Breton scenes. The exhibition runs from July 19 to September 12, 2016.
