SANTA CLARITA—The College of the Canyons Art Gallery will be exhibiting the work of Los Angeles-based artist Stacie Jaye Meyer from September 29 to October 25.

“Stacie is one of the most inspiring artists I know,” said Larry Hurst, director of the COC art gallery. “She is multi-talented and fearless. We will be presenting paintings and drawings that are sometimes formal and other times experimental. This is work that pushes the boundaries.”

A classically trained painter, Meyers relies on photography to accurately convey the transience of life and details that tend to go unnoticed, be it the intricacy of lace or the grooves and lines in a bird’s feather pattern, when approaching the canvas.

“I have developed a method that uses both a digital and analogue capture and process,” said Meyer on her website. “A parallel cycle between the eye and hand across a variety of mediums informs this act of capture and recapture, and thus the essence of the image is discovered.”

Meyer studied at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, North American School of Decorative Arts and Otis College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited at various studios throughout Southern California and in her home state of Wisconsin.

An artist’s reception for Meyer will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29. Meyer will also discuss her work during a special presentation taking place from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10 in the gallery.

The College of the Canyons Art Gallery is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Those unable to visit the gallery during normal hours are welcome to call (661) 362-3612 to schedule a viewing appointment. All gallery exhibitions and related events are free and open to the public.
