Born and raised in New York City, Meredith Nemirov received a BFA from Parsons School of Design. She was a figurative painter and worked as a freelance illustrator. After Lawrence Alloway made a studio visit to jury her work into the inaugural show at The Queens Museum, she devoted herself to painting full time. Her work has been exhibited in one-person and group shows at museums around the country.
In 1988, Nemirov moved to a small town in Colorado. This change in environment brought a change of theme as Nemirov faced the mountains instead of the rush of humanity on the streets. She started painting the landscape and also focused on the aspen tree that she considers the figure in the landscape. She has taught classes based on this body of work for The Smithsonian Institute through The Pinhead Institute and the AhHaa School for the Arts in Telluride, CO, and through an NEA grant in Montrose, CO. Nemirov was an Artist in Residence at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, CO in 2008, and received a grant from the Vermont Studio Center for a residency in April 2010.read Meredith Nemirov’s Artist Statement
