Meryl Blinder has strong ties to New Jersey. She lived in Princeton on and off from the 1970s and worked as a colorist for Michael Graves Architects from 1989 to 1997. More recently you may have seen her work locally at the Jupiter in Little Silver Gallery, which is owned by her sister Judi Trammell. She currently resides in Boston.
Ms. Blinder got serious about her studio practice in 2000. Her paintings are structured works in which she explores subtle color relationships. She is particularly drawn to wave and grid patterns and by repeating them she has the freedom to focus on color. The grids are drawn in pencil and left intact allowing the viewer to observe the manufacturing process. Squares and circles are often seen in repeating patterns.
Ms. Binder is a 2022 Artist-in-Residence at the Oyster Point Hotel in Red Bank, NJ. His year at the Hotel will begin with an opening of the solo exhibition with a cocktail on Friday February 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Blinder to the Art Program at the Oyster Point Hotel. The Oyster Point Hotel is located at 146 Bodman Place, Red Bank, NJ. This event is free and the public is cordially invited.
In 2001 and 2002, she was invited to create installations for World AIDS Day at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She is currently an adjunct professor at Wentworth Institute of Technology where she teaches color, design and drawing. Ms. Blinder has exhibited her work extensively, including exhibitions at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Danforth Museum, and the Brooklyn Waterfront Coalition.
