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.

Sandra's colorful and expressive abstract paintings and collages are about "place", and take inspiration from the landscape - While the artworks are not a representation of any specific location, they oftentimes are evocative of landscape. She invites the viewer to engage with her artworks through memory, imagination, and reverie. Working with oil paint, oil pigment sticks, watercolor and other media, her paintings and collages have been described by a curator as “visceral and expressive”.

I am an abstract artist represented by BeatyAmerican in Olde Kensington, Philadelphia.  My paintings include a series of Arctic landscapes which are based on images of arctic glaciers, tundra, and sea ice mainly in Greenland and Iceland.  I have been selected as the featured artist for the BeatyAmerican new space with NEXTFAB at 1800 American Street, Philadelphia.  I am drawn to the elements of the Arctic sea, land, and sky and the interface among these bodies.  Decisions are made what features and elements will remain and what will be discarded, reflecting a rapidly changing landscape yet still beautiful.
I work with oil paint, wet on dry, on wood panels with cradled frames establishing texture and depth using brushes, palette knives, oil sticks, and oil pens.  Completed paintings are professionally framed and ready to hang.
Earlier work focused on urban landscapes, refineries, bridges, buildings, other structures, and geometric patterns of developed lands and built environments.
