Meredith Foster maintains a studio practice that is based in interaction with and interpretation of land, its usage and the resulting possibilities of transformation that occur from such. She applies these interests daily at Urbana Land Arts, an art and design studio which integrates public art and landscape architecture. Additionally, Meredith works as a teaching artist for youth and adults throughout both the Champaign-Urbana and St. Louis areas, instructing classes and workshops at institutions including Parkland College’s Continuing Education, St. John’s Lutheran School, Urbana School District 116 and COCA. Holding an MFA in Visual Art from Washington University in St. Louis and a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, her work was been published in New American Paintings and has received awards including an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship. Meredith exhibits both locally and nationally with recent exhibits at The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Millstone Gallery at COCA in St. Louis and the South Bend Museum of Art.
