Resonant Places: Paintings by Megan Chase, Curated by George Kinghorn for the University of Maine museum of Art, is currently on display in Augusta's Capitol complex.

Megan Chase, a painter based in Belfast, exhibits a series of expressionistic landscapes in which color is paramount. The artist states that, “color builds the images and space and is implicit in the development of meaning.” Inspiration for Chase’s paintings is derived from travel and from witnessing the play of light, color and pattern during her daily work on the family farm.
