b. 1957 Draftswoman, Mentor, Lecturer, Drawing Instructor
Meredith Rosier creates drawings that reflect her examination of the interaction between exactitude and vagueness. Employing tonality to sustain the apprehension of the picture plane and to slow the process of categorical recognition, she courts the dialogue of abstraction.
Rosier has studied drawing at Yale University School of Art, and was awarded a full scholarship for the Masters of Fine Arts Degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia. She was mentored by Jacob Landau until his death and by Irving Petlin of Paris, France. She was awarded residencies to The Winchester School of Art, Winchester, England; The Tangier American Legation Museum, Tangier, Morocco; The Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, Vermont and The Lacoste School of Art, Lacoste Vaucluse, France.
Her drawings reside in museum collections such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Weatherspoon Art Museum (Dillard Collection of Art on Paper), Greensboro, North Carolina; Arkansas Museum of Art (Drawing Collection), Little Rock, Arkansas; Italian Consulate Collection, Italy; and The Tangier American Legation Museum, Tangier, Morocco. She is the Recipient of the Sally Jacobs/Phoebe Towbin Award, Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, Woodstock, New York.
Her work has garnered many awards and in 2015, she was presented with The National Association of Women Artists Genius Award.
