1. What is your name?
2. What is the name of your business?
3. Where are you from?
Born in Park City, Utah
4. How many years have you been in Park City?
All said, about 20 years. I have lived in other parts of Utah and the country but always knew I would be returning to the hometown that I love.
5. How many years have you been on Main Street?
My parents opened the gallery in 1965 when I was 4 years old.
6. Tell us about yourself.
My family moved to Park City in the 1960’s and lived in one of the houses up on Sandridge. I attended kindergarten at Marsac Elementary. Park City was of course quieter then but I remember, even when I was young, thinking how much I loved it.
7. Tell us about your business.
Meyer Gallery is an art gallery that represents contemporary artists mostly from our region. I am very proud to represent some Utah’s most respected artists. A Meyer Gallery can also be found in Santa Fe, New Mexico which was also started by my parents and is now owned by my brother, Dirk Meyer. We are located in a handsome Historic Landmark building on Main Street. The building was designed by Frederick Hale who was a highly revered architect in the intermountain region. The original bank vaults and brick interior wall remain intact.
8. Describe Historic Park City in five words?
That’s a challenge: Unforgettable, Proud, Storybook, Hardy, Cherished.
9. What is your favorite time of year in Park City?
Autumn is definitely my favorite time. The hillside is stunning and people are excited for the upcoming winter but still taking out time to enjoy the beautiful mountain trails in our area.
10. Anything else you would like to share?
The Meyer Gallery celebrates 50 wonderful years in Park City in 2015. We are planning a July Anniversary Group Show as well as a December 2015 “Thanks for Fifty Years” show. We just couldn’t choose between celebrating with either our summer clientele or our winter clientele so we chose both. I figure when a gal reaches a certain age she can throw a party anytime she wants so Meyer Gallery will do just that. We are also commissioning a special piece of artwork by Utah artist Andrew Smith which will be donated to one of Park City’s institutions. We want to say “Thank You” for fifty years in a special artful way.
Thank you for letting me share about the Meyer Gallery.
