Mary Meyer is a mixed media artist who specializes in sculpture and installations. Strongly influenced by a background in traditional stone carving, she uses meditative processes and materials to illustrate our physical kinship with the natural world. Her current work emphasizes the innate human need to find stillness in our daily lives and reconnect with the quiet energy that is our true nature. Meyer’s wall panels and installations are comprised of various media such as ceramic, wood, pigments, and often include reflective components such as metal castings, found objects, and graphite surface treatments. 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.
Meyer is a recipient of the George M. Cullough Award, presented at the Tucson Museum of Art's Arizona Biennial in 2007. In 2016, she was awarded an Artist Grant through Contemporary Forum, a support arm of the Phoenix Art Museum, and was recognized as one of Arizona’s 100 Creatives by Phoenix New Times. She has served as a Faculty Associate at Arizona State University and Scottsdale Community College, and has taught workshops for the Visions Youth Program through the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally, and is represented in numerous private collections.
Originally from the Midwest, Mary Meyer lives and works in Gold Canyon, Arizona.
