In Memory of Donald C. Meyer
Don Meyer was a devoted Distinguished Member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club. An accomplished painter, he enthusiastically and tirelessly served the PSC in a myriad of different ways, including serving as Vice President for over 10 years, and acting as Chairman of a host of different exhibitions. A well-known artist in Philadelphia, in 2002 Don was the subject of a one-person exhibition at the Berman Museum on the campus of Ursinus College. In addition, he was the Curator for the exhibition Surviving Ourselves, an exhibition of the contemporary masters of the Philadelphia Sketch Club in the permanent collection of the Woodmere Art Museum. Don passed away suddenly on September 11th, 2012. Fortunately, he left us with a large body of videos and podcasts that can be seen and heard at donaldmeyerhome.com. Through the generosity of his wife, Dianne Meyer, we are able to remember him and honor his legacy with the Donald C. Meyer Medal.
