In 2023 Gail Robin Meyers was the Winner of the Pietro and Alfrieda Montana Memorial Award for Sculpture, $500



--By Michael Gabriele

Gail Robin Meyers, who captured the $500 Pietro and Alfrieda Montana Memorial Award for sculpture, described her work as “controlled chaos, creating compositions that are contained and balanced, but slightly off-kilter. Lately I’ve become fascinated by the possibilities of string and its incorporation into the circular form.”

Meyers said her process as a sculptor includes combining color, texture and geometric shape, negative and positive space, and two- and three-dimensional forms. “This has led to experimentation with light, shadow, and movement, and how these affect the experience of the work.”

She is the recipient of the Margaret Stefan Draughon Merit Scholarship for study at The Art Students League (2023-2024); the Blue Ribbon winner for “Ode to Mr. Wright,” Uncovered Treasures exhibition (2022); the (New York) City Artists Corp Grant (2021); the SU-CASA Art and Teaching Grant (Queens, NY, 2020); and the National Association of Women Artists, Juried Member (September 2019-present)
