Driven by materiality and process, Mary Meyer's work is strongly influenced by a background in traditional stone carving and foundry casting methods. Her wall panels and installations are comprised of various media-- wood, paper, wax, ceramic, sand-- with an emphasis on reflective components such as metal castings, found objects, and graphite surface treatments. Originally from the Midwest, she works full time from her studio in Arizona, her home for over 20 years. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Arizona State University, and her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Arizona, where she received the MFA Fellowship.
In 2016, Meyer was recognized as one of the city’s 100 Creatives by Phoenix New Times. Notably, she was awarded an Artist Grant through Contemporary Forum, a support arm of the Phoenix Art Museum. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally, and is represented in numerous private collections.
