Stamps alum Catherine Meier (MFA 2009) explores the meaning of “open space” through animation, site-specific installations, and large-scale prints and drawings. Representing a state of mind as well as a state of being, these expansive works are redolent of the artist’s own travels crossing the Great Plains of North America and the Mongolian Steppe. Recently, Meier was an Artist in Residence at Badlands National Park in South Dakota, and her awards include a national Jacob K. Javits Fellowship for Graduate study, three Arrowhead Regional Arts Council Fellowships, and a McKnight Visual Artist Fellowship. Viewers can catch a glimpse of Meier’s work on view at a variety of venues this fall.
