Brother Mel Meyer
A Florissant native, Meyer has worked as a resident artist in St. Louis during the past 25 years. He joined the Marianists (Brothers of Mary) in 1947. In 1960, he earned his Master of Arts at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, studying under the internationally renowned artists Ivan Mestrovic and Jean Charlot. Today Meyer’s works not only reflect numerous travels, but also an ever-expanding ability to create art in a variety of media, such as metal, stone, watercolor, fresco, acrylics and handmade paper.
