Amy Myers

Biography

Born in Taylor, Texas, Amy Myers received her B.F.A from the Kansas City Art Institute and her M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her abstract drawings are large, yet intricately detailed, executed in a dry palette of graphite, gouache, and conté crayon. The precision of the arcs and curves reference particle physics, evoking the continually changing relationships and possibilities that unfold at the molecular level of space.

Myers’ artwork has been featured in numerous exhibitions at museums and art spaces across the country, including the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center, Georgia; the Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield, Massachusetts; the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, California; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the San Jose Museum of Art, California; and the Biagiotti Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy. Myers’ drawings can be found in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, New York; Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, California; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, Kansas; and University Art Museum at California State University, Long Beach, California. Myers was recently awarded a 2018-2019 Pollock-Krasner Foundation artist grant.
