Artists: Allison Lee Merriweather

Allison Lee Merriweather
Allison Merriweather is a true "outsider" artist who once specialized in very large, detailed, and striking canvases, many of them five to seven feet in length. However, much of her recent work is at the opposite end - small canvases and a number of limited edtion prints. The latter are more than high quality prints on heavy, 90 lb archival paper. She hand embellishes each of these with paint and brush, so that no two are the same. You may view her limited editions separately from our entire collection of her work.

Allison is compelled to paint by a force she does not understand. She uses symbolism, often repeated across various works, in both large and small ways. The ferocious animals in many of her works are an obvious theme; the little green grasshopper which hops among many of her canvases is a less obvious one.

Allison has had an incredible number of one-woman exhibitions, many in California at venues including the Upstairs Gallery, The Lab, the Wells Fargo Exhibition Room, the American Institute of Architecture, and others. Her prints have been featured at the American Visionary Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. At last count, she has participated in almost thirty juried shows with many awards and publications including Artweek and Man In Nature. See a list of her recent exhibits and published works.

Her paintings are in many corporate collections - among them are The Tanaka Group, Tokyo, Intersource Group, Los Angeles, and Altec Digital Industries, Redwood City, California.
