MYERS, Marcia

Marcia Myers (1949-2008), born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, is best known as a fresco artist who painted abstract canvases that reflect her love of Pompeii, the frescoes of the Renaissance, and Abstract Expressionism. Marcia was deeply influenced by the ancient ruins in Pompeii and Herculaneum, in particular, making numerous visits to study the frescoed walls.

After completing her MFA in painting at George Washington University, Myers began teaching Art History at the Madeira School in Virginia. She later credited her academic training, including classes on materials and methods, with giving her the confidence to push the limits with the mediums that she experimented with when creating her works.
