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.

My art is a hybrid of the figurative and the abstract.The satire and cartoon imagery of my youthful artwork began to evolve as I grew more familiar with German Expressionism, American Social Realism and Abstract Expressionism. The sketches of people drawn from life that I do almost daily provide constant fodder for my humorous paintings, drawings and prints. My work is a synthesis of humor and fine art. I am quite serious about being silly. My goal is to create art that is sown from the depths of comic outrageousness, satirical observation and mild misanthropy. If Matisse had the “sun in his belly," I have a banana peel permanently attached to my shoe!

G. Kellum challenges the rear view perspective of artistic expression and dives into the world of urban aesthetics, as we know it. It also explores the possibilities present in spiritual and psychological practices. Look then, look again. As we move toward the future the images grow more familiar with each truth they unveil. This then becomes a series that grows with time.

Jennifer Baker is a visual artist working in varied media including: painting, monotype, sculpture, and installation. Her images of Northern Liberties document the changes in that Philadelphia neighborhood over a period of 30 years, from the fires and the wrecking balls of the 1980s and 90s to the runaway construction of the 2000s. Other images explore the central Pennsylvania town of Centralia where an underground fire has burned in a coal seam for over 50 years. These pieces have a roughness and immediacy in their execution that matches their subject matter. Her life size sculptures and installation pieces show another side of her interests, and most recently she has been working on a series of drawings documenting her life in the time of coronavirus. All of these pieces have in common an interest in narrative and a sense of place and memory.
