Linn Meyers has an MFA from the California College of the Arts and has won many awards, including a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. Her traditional canvas paintings and site-specific paintings have been shown internationally.
Meyers’ work has been reviewed in many publications. A few of these articles are available through LexisNexis Academic and WilsonWeb on the UArts Libraries’ website.
Frank Cebulski, in “The Space Between at SJICA,” (Artweek, June 2008) describes, in detail, the process Meyer’s employed for one of her “beautiful optical” site-specific drawings. Also view Douglas Witmer’s blog video posting of Meyer’s working on her piece for The Space Between.
In “Artist Goes Flat-Out to Draw the Viewer in,” (The Washington Post, 20 February 2009), M. O’Sullivan reviews Meyer’s two large-scale wall drawings (along with smaller works on Mylar) at the University of Maryland’s Art Gallery. O’Sullivan notes that “it isn’t hard to feel something powerful here.”
