Spencer Art Gallery in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Laurie Meyer

The Spencer Art Gallery in Charleston, SC, will feature a special exhibit entitled, Breaking Out, by Mt. Pleasant, SC, artist Laurie Meyer from June 7 - 30, 2002.

"Meyer is a very multi-talented artist," says gallery owner Jerry Spencer. "She is best known for her outstanding watercolor portraits of children and adults at play, capturing the very essence of her subjects. She also reaches into depicting everyday scenes of people and places in watercolor and oil. As a muralist, she is much in demand."

"Figures are typically found in her paintings, yet she also enjoys painting the architecture of Charleston and other cities with European influence. Her outstanding color sense and her thorough understanding of design concepts are obvious in her work," Spencer continues.

Meyer's background includes experience as an award winning editorial cartoonist. After a first love of drawing, she studied watercolor and oil painting using traditional self-study methods as well as studying under various local professionals. In her career as a professional artist, Meyer has been honored with numerous awards and ribbons. Her paintings can be found in numerous private collections throughout the Southeast.

Meyer also serves the arts and the community at large. She has served as the President of the Mt. Pleasant Artist Guild for two years. She has also served on the Board of Directors of the Alzheimer's Association for eight years and has served as Vice President and Coordinator for the Art of Alzheimer's Project. The Spencer Art Gallery is very pleased to have the opportunity to show the work of Laurie Meyer.
