Meyers Gallery Current Exhibit

About Meyers Gallery

The Philip M. Meyers Jr. Memorial Gallery is located in the Steger Student Life Center in the heart of the University’s Main Street.  Situated across from the recreation center and the Tangeman Student Center, we are located in the hub of student life and bring visual culture and practice to the university at large as well as to the surrounding region.  The Meyers Gallery exhibitions address two main objectives: first to expose the wider university community to the practices within DAAP; and second to present exhibitions that address the practices of other colleges within the university, generally historic or scientific in focus.  The intention is to provide the university population with access to a greater understanding of the visual presentation of complex ideas and concepts.


The Meyers Gallery is staffed by current students within the DAAP School of Art in order to provide them with a range of knowledge and understanding of exhibition techniques and practices.  This experience provides student artists, art historians, and art educators a setting in which to explore and implement the theories and concepts of their academic and studio practices into a working setting.  DAAP Galleries employees are equipped with the necessary skills to present and discuss a variety of visual materials with a diverse audience, thus enabling them to better articulate the visual communication of complex ideas and to foster a better understanding of visual communication.

Current Exhibit - Continuum

Lost Behind the Screen, Katherine Taylor, sculpture, mixed media, 2020

The DAAP Galleries are proud to present Continuum, an exhibition by the students in the 2020 Sophomore Research studio instructed by Lorena Molina and Kyle Angel. All 18 students were specifically chosen by the Fine Art Faculty based on their portfolios and performance in the Foundations Review at the end of their first year.

During the fall 2020 semester, students proposed a project that they developed through critiques and individual student-professor meetings. One of the main focuses of the studio was to investigate different forms of research. Students achieved this goal by doing independent research, class readings discussions, and examining how other artists conduct research in their practice. Throughout the semester, student groups conducted periodic Webex interviews with contemporary artists in order to understand how research and process affect their everyday practice.

Because of socially distanced learning during the semester, the students created and curated their own online exhibition at the end of the semester, and this is the physical manifestation of that exhibition.

The artists featured in this exhibition are:

Katherine Donaghy - Samuel Edwards - Ethan Humrichouser - Vicky Lee 

Kenna Lewis - Natalie Lorenz - Lauren Maenle - Kendall Matsey - Samantha Mckee 

Hugh Moscoe - Fiona Schade - Katherine Taylor - Tucker Wood - Kara Yeomans
