Meg Webster (b. 1944, San Francisco, CA) has long been guided by an environmentalist impulse to celebrate and preserve the natural world. She produces both indoor sculptures made of salt, earth, sand, and other natural materials, and outdoor installations designed to enhance the community’s appreciation for and understanding of the earth’s ecosystem. Webster received her MFA from Yale University in 1983, and had a one-person exhibition at Donald Judd’s exhibition space on Spring Street, New York, the same year. Subsequent one-person exhibitions have been held at The Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh (1984); the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (1991); The Brooklyn Museum, New York (1992); P.S. 1 Contemporary Arts Center, New York (1998); and MoMA P.S. 1 (2013). In 2017, Webster participated in the two-person exhibition, Natura Naturans at Villa Panza in Varese, Italy. She also presented her large-scale earthwork, Concave Room for Bees, at Socrates Sculpture Park, commissioned for their 2016 exhibition, “LANDMARK.” She will have a one-person exhibition at the LMCC Art Center at Governor’s Island, New York, in 2021. Webster lives and works in New York.
