Maggie Meiners (b.1972, Chicago) is an artist whose work subversively disrupts the common narrative. Using her background in Cultural Anthropology, she tackles intense internal conflicts by deconstructing them through the use of pop culture, interiors, fashion, food, film and art. Born and raised outside of Chicago, she holds a BA in Cultural Anthropology from University of Colorado-Boulder, a Masters in Education from De Paul University in Chicago and will receive her MFA from Maine Media College in May 2021.
In 2016, Maggie debuted her series, Revisiting Rockwell in a solo exhibition at Anne Loucks Gallery in Glencoe, IL. In 2017, the work was featured in a solo exhibition at The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH, and travelled to other venues around the country. In 2020, Revisiting Rockwell will be exhibited at the Montclair Museum of Art in Montclair, NJ. Maggie’s photographs have been widely exhibited and remain in the permanent collections of the Illinois Institute of Art, Wheaton College, Harrison Street Lofts, Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, LLP and numerous private collections. In addition, her work is on loan at the American Embassy in Uruguay.
In April 2019, Maggie’s first film, The Little Black Dress, was nominated for Best Mobile Short at the Indie Shorts Fest (Los Angeles International Film Festival) and is an Official Selection in The International women’s Film Festival and the LA Neo Noir Film Festival, as well. Maggie had her first solo exhibition in 2005 at The Union League Club of Chicago-- one of the most esteemed private collectors of art in the country.
Maggie’s work is represented by Anne Loucks Gallery in Glencoe, IL.
