This show at the Casano Center is Meyers’ first time exhibiting her artwork. The show’s seven works display a wide range of themes reflecting her diverse interests. Colorful acrylic landscapes hang side by side with unique photographs of scary cats and flowers. A pencil sketch of a mime performing appears to jump out of the frame. And a three-dimensional wreath displays Meyers’craft interests.
A self-taught artist, Meyers is originally from Pennsylvania and has resided in Roselle Park for the past 23 years. In addition to acrylic painting, pencil sketching, digital photography, and jewelry making, she enjoys working with her hands — doing crochet, knitting or gardening. Floral design is also one of her longtime passions, which she has pursued by attending floral design classes at Union County Community College.
Meyers says, “I am excited that I can share my favorite things with other people in this lovely gallery space.”
The Casano Community Center is located in downtown Roselle Park at 314 Chestnut Street. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Wednesday, Sept. 2, from 6:30 – 8 p.m. in the gallery. The gallery’s hours are Monday – Thursday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The gallery accepts work only from Roselle Park residents. Leona Seufert, the gallery curator, welcomes inquiries from artists and seeking artists to exhibit in 2010. Artwork must be two dimensional; no sculpture or jewelry will be accepted. Call 908-241-5874 or e-mail Studio-L@att.net.
