Brooklyn Museum’s ”go” Open Studios

Interview by Linda C. Smith

Brooklyn Museum’s “Go” Open Studios

More than 1,700 artists across Brooklyn opened their studio doors to the public during the Brooklyn Museum GO Open Studio. The event was very exciting and Meri received 80 visitors, many newcomers, with whom she had the pleasure to meet and share her art.

From the Open Studios’ Guestbook:

“Was speechless. Thanks for opening up your home, explaining your process and for a deeper understanding of your work.”

—Justin M. Wil

“Hands down the most moving work... literally and figuratively! Thanks for sharing. Best of luck.”

—Kathlyn Wilson

“Beautiful work, definitely my favorite of the bunch. Love the gestural marks in black and white and in color. The longer you look at them, the more you see. It also helps to look away then look back and you see more and more figures in the drawings/ paintings. I also loved her explanations of the work and process. She really deserves a show in BK museum.”
