Robin Meyer: Life and death of charm city

Robin Meyer, Guilt by Association, 2013, Charcoal, caution-tape, gold leaf and acrylic on vellum, 18 x 24 inches

Robin Meyer's solo exhibition in the Common Ground Gallery at VisArts investigates Baltimore and finds a city branded by the red "X"- a mark signifying an uninhabitable dwelling. The “X” appears frequently in her exhibition where traditional painting and drawing merge with digital technologies. The "X", Meyer suggests, might serve as the current logo of Baltimore. She presents a portrait of Baltimore as a city whose charms and deficits exist side by side. The city emerges as a confused 21st century location that is part graphic novel, film noir and actual fact. 

About the Artist: Robin Meyer is an Associate Professor of Studio Art at Montgomery College. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Meyer also manages and designs community based art projects. She received a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia and an MFA from Syracuse University. Meyer was born in Lake Katrine, NY, and lived most of her life in Philadelphia. She now resides in Baltimore, MD. robinmeyer.info
