MEEHAN, STE. MICHELLE ARE DA DA OFFERINGS

Dec. 20, 2001 – The work of St. Thomas artist Madeleine I.E. Meehan and the wines of Chateau Ste. Michelle will be featured at the final Da Da Wine Down of 2001, Friday, Dec. 28, at Cafe Amici in Riise's Alley.
Meehan has become known for her "Mostly Music Art" drawings and paintings, which capture musicians and other artists in live performance. She often can be found seated near the front of the stage at concerts, drawing pad and pens in hand.
The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Admission is free; there will be finger food compliments of Cafe Amici and door prizes of dining certificates and artwork. There is a $10 fee for the wine tasting and seminar. A cash bar also will be in service.
A representative of Bellows International, distributor of Chateau Ste. Michelle wines, will conduct the seminar and tasting, which will be ongoing throughout the evening.
Meehan's themes incorporate performance art from classical to carnival. A life member of the Art Students League in New York, she is a graduate of New York's High School of Music and Art, Cornell University and L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Fountainebleau, France. Her images convey the kinetic energy of the performers — soaring, swirling and reverberating, "striking chords, stroking innuendoes, moving lyrically and unceasingly forward," she says.
She got her musical immersion experience at rehearsals and recording sessions with the London Symphony and London Philharmonic Orchestras, Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Field, several U.S. orchestras, and artists performing at the Edinburgh and Spoleto U.S.A. Festivals. In the Caribbean, she has "jammed" with calypsonians and carnival troupes, Caribbean Dance Company and Carifesta artists.
Meehan works in the mediums of pen and ink, oil and aquarelle. Her work can be seen locally at the MAPes MONDes gallery in Grand Galleria, Tillett Art Gallery, Nisky Art & Craft and The Color of Joy.
