Line Drawings


Philadelphia, PA – Gallery Joe is pleased to announce the opening of line drawings, a show of work by Linn Meyers on Friday, October 25, 2002. This is Meyers’ first solo show with Gallery Joe. Line drawings is on show in the Vault Gallery and will run through November 30, 2002.

Meyers will show seven new drawings from her series of counting drawings, including one scroll over ten feet long. Each drawing is composed of tiny vertical marks in ink with acrylic and colored pencil on Mylar. Meyers juxtaposes several translucent planes to reveal underlying surfaces creating an illusion of space. Patience and resolve combine to make these drawings an homage to work. Repetition and order in turn remind one of the passage of time. But these are not forced marches. Though thousands of marks compose each drawing there is softness, humor, and gentleness in each piece.

This season is a busy one for Meyers. Other openings include a solo show this month at the Frick Art Museum in Pittsburgh followed by two more museum shows in 2003, one at Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, PA and another at the New Britain Museum of American Art, in Connecticut. Myers has shown widely in the US including the 2000 Pittsburgh Biennial, Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, and the Three Rivers Gallery in Pittsburgh, Materia in Scottsdale, AZ, Troyer Gallery in Washington, DC, and George Billis Gallery in New York. Meyers first showed with Gallery Joe last spring in 4 Drawing artists, a group show of drawings by artists new to the gallery.

Linn Meyers lives and works in Washington, DC. She received her BFA in 1990 from Cooper Union in New York and her MFA from California College of Arts and Crafts in 1993.

Line drawings opens Friday, October 25 and runs through November 30, 2002. The artist will be present at a reception on Friday, October 25, from 5:30 - 7:30 P.M.
