One of our favorite artists, L.A.-based Megan Whitmarsh, whose delightful, everyday-object-inspired paintings and cloth Sharpies have earned her a cult following, has a solo show opening on Saturday at New Image Art Gallery in L.A., "Here Comes Purple," which promises a "bolder, conceptual side of her lage wall works and soft sculpture collage."  We are so happy to be able to show you a sneak peek of some of the pieces. And if you're in L.A., be sure to stop by.
