There are many opportunities to get involved with the art world on campus at Marywood University. On Wednesday, February 4th, one of the artists featured in our very own Maslow Collection is coming to Marywood. Abstract Expressionist Melissa Meyer will be here to discuss her work and contributions to the art world as part of our Distinguished Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Meyer’s work is very colorful and consists of large strokes composed in a grid-like pattern. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at New York University and she resides in the city as well. Meyer is an artist for the Lennon Weinberg Gallery, also located in New York. As a graphic design major, I have been hearing about the use of the grid in my classes since I started here. It will be interesting to see how Meyer uses the grid in her work and how she composes her paintings.
Melissa Meyer will be speaking in the Library in room 160 at 3:00 p.m. on Feb. 4th 2015, and there will be a reception afterwards in the Shields Center. For anyone who can make it, I highly encourage you to attend. It is a great opportunity to meet a professional artist without making the 2.5 hour drive to NYC.
