ILENE MEYER 1939-2009
The exposure helped launch Ilene's gallery career and she was the subject of numerous exhibitions in the United States as well as in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagasaki, Japan (where she became something of a TV celebrity). Her still-life paintings had astonishing depth, while her whimsical paintings of animals (both real and imagined) were both fun and thoughtful. Some of her work appeared in various editions of Spectrum.
We had put together a hardcover collection of her paintings, Ilene Meyer: Paintings, Drawings, Perceptions in 2005 that we hoped would serve as a brief precursor to a much more thorough examination of her engaging art sometime in the future. Hopefully it will serve as a vibrant memorial to an invigorating artist.
Rest in peace, Ilene.
