We’re back again at the top of the week bringing you local events, and this time, a local artist spotlight! Last Friday, we got to spend some time with artist Megan Kelly. We were able to meet with her as she created a triple level Mandala at River Mill Lofts and talk with her about her art. You might have seen her Mandala art in downtown, and if you haven’t, we encourage you to check it out! Megan absolutely loves creating these masterpieces and is extremely humble about her talents. She uses painting to relax and clear her mind, all the while creating something amazing! We encourage you to check her out on Instagram and Facebook @megankellyart!
