About Artist: Melissa Meyer was born in the Bronx and grew up in Queens. She studied at New York University from 1968 to 1975, receiving a B.S. and an M.A. Meyer spent her summers as a scholarship student at the Provincetown Workshop, working with Leo Manso and Victor Candell. Shortly thereafter, in 1974, Meyer made her first visit to Yaddo, upon the recommendation of Helen Frankenthaler. Since that time, she has made countless visits to Yaddo and is currently a board member. Melissa Meyer has been the recipient of many other grants and residencies as well, including a fellowship at The American Academy in Rome (1980),two National Endowment for the Arts grants (1983, 1993), the National Academy 183rd Invitational Eric Isenburger Annual Award (2008) and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2009). In the late-seventies, Melissa Meyer questioned why so many women made collages, an idea that sparked Miriam Schapiro’s interest. Their collaboration became the influential Heresies article entitled Femmage.
