Margaret Withers is a Brooklyn based artist working in tactile (works on paper/canvas) and non-tactile, web based art. Her tactile plays with the physics of paint and the conflicting ideas of joy and melancholy; and isolation and alienation in regards to the concept of home and communication. Her web based transliteration project is based on cultural shifts in the 50 US states. Originally from Texas, Withers has exhibited her work throughout the country and and internationally in Brussels, Australia, Berlin, China, Vienna and Russia. Her artwork is included in multiple private and corporate collections and has won numerous awards including a 2013/2015 resident fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center and the Millay Colony, and a 2013 USA Project Grant.
