Parker Gallery would like to share the sad news that our much-loved artist and friend, Meg Latham

Parker Gallery would like to share the sad news that our much-loved artist and friend, Meg Latham, has passed away. My first introduction to Meg came after her artwork had already arrived at the gallery following an exhibition at Refinery Art Space. The day Meg actually stepped foot in the gallery she looked like a style icon from ‘The Sartorialist’, impeccably dressed from head to toe and I loved everything about her from that moment. Not only was Meg a master of fashion, she was a gifted creative who could turn her hand to any art form, be it ceramics, fine art, craft, interior design, architecture or wearable art. There wasn’t anything she touched that couldn’t be transformed by her practicality and creative mind. As well as all of that she was simply a fabulous person to know. Once Meg became unwell and no longer able to make artwork, we still kept in touch. When I broke my ankle, Meg was also in hospital, so we shared stories via text about the insipid colour of the Nelson Hospital gowns. As it turned out she was lucky enough to score an “earlier model nightgown that is a slightly bluer hue”, which she added, worked well with her new “pearl blue” shade of hair. (She still had her sense of humour!) Even if Meg was feeling terrible, she didn’t let it show and would always bring sunshine and positivity to our conversations. I count myself lucky to have known her, as well as having had the privilege to send her artworks to her fans throughout the world. Thank you Meg for sharing your friendship, your creativity, your irresistible love of style and your incredible sparkle with us all. Rest in style my friend. ?
A celebration of Meg’s life is going to be held at 2pm on Thursday 12th August at The Granary, Founder’s Heritage Park
