While each artist possesses a distinct style and aesthetic, a common thread runs though the intent and content of the work.
April 2- May 3

ShopSCAD Savannah currently has pieces from Meryl’s Picturing the Beltline Project and her continuing project Vernacular Highway on display and for sale. ShopSCAD Atlanta will also be featuring her work in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled! Please visit ShopSCAD for more information.
Her show in Atlanta, Picturing the Beltline, featuring her new work based on Atlanta’s Beltline project was well recieved. Read a review from burnaway.org’s Jeremy Abernathy who said that Meryl “can turn rust into rubies; she has an eye for architectural oddities and strikingly desolate landscapes.”
