Pierce City native, Judy Landoll Meirick, enjoys the art of graphite pencil, color pencil and oil painting. She is best known for her city collage drawings that started with her hometown of Pierce City.


"I grew up loving the building and architectural structures in this old Victorian town. It got me thinking about other towns I admired too. Then Dave and I went on many road trips so I could do my research." Monett, Mount Vernon, Carthage, Neosho, Springfield; Eureka Springs, Ar., and others soon added to her collection. In addition to city collages, Meirick presents still lifes rendered in colored pencil, while using oil paints to create vibrant floral paintings. Graphite and color pencil portraits are also in her repertoire. Meirick is an active member of the Pierce City Arts Council.


Artist Statement: " My goal is to capture the essence of time, places, and beauty in my work".

A variety of ''Judy's Art-Works" will be on display through December 31st, 2016. Artopia is open 10am to 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Please call 417-476-6500 with any inquiries you have in regard to this show or to learn about art and music classes Artopia has to offer.
