Margo Ray

Margo is an artist from the Big Island of Hawai’i engaging in printmaking, collage and installation. In her work she explores notions of displacement, vulnerability and authenticity through the allegory of landscape and an ongoing narrative of an intruder in a secret garden. She holds an MFA from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec and a BA in Studio Arts from University of Hawaii at Hilo. She has also studied art in Beijing, China and has traveled extensively to the South Pacific, Vietnam, Peru, and Western Europe. Her works have been exhibited in venues such as Second Street Gallery (Charlottesville, VA), The Honolulu Museum of Art at First Hawaiian Center (Honolulu, HI) and Parisian Laundry (Montreal,QC). Ray has held residencies at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley,CA and St.Michael's Print Shop in Newfoundland, Canada; her artwork can be found in the collections of the Hawai’i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, The Honolulu Museum of Art Gift Print collection, and the Artist Book Collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale du Quebec.
