About the Artist

Margie McDonald (Port Townsend) received a 2007 GAP for professional development expenses including coaching, production of promotional materials, professional photographs, website maintenance, application fees for regional competitions and pursuit of gallery representation. “In 1998 I began working as a yacht rigger.  My formal education in textiles drew me to take home metal industrial waste that was destined for recycling. I now deconstruct cast-off hardware and wire into inventive organic forms, breathing new life into inert materials.”

Artist's Addenda: In 2008, Margie McDonald received a residency and solo show at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in Kansas City, MO.
