Brother Mel Meyer

Brother Mel Meyer's studio was in St. Louis but sold his work throughout the world. The book, Brother Mel: A Lifetime of Making Art, was released in 2009 by Anne Brown. Mel Meyer became Brother Mel when he joined the Marianist order in 1948. Well-educated (he got a master's in fine art from Notre Dame) and well-traveled (he studied and traveled extensively in Europe), Meyer became the first Marianist to take on art as a vocation, in the late 60s. His constantly evolving technique has included countless combinations of watercolor, oil painting, metal sculpture and various other media, utilized to create both abstract and figurative work.
