Please help us in welcoming Meryl Engler to Akron, Ohio! Meryl received the live-in Artist in Residency position at Rubber City Prints for a full year until August 2021. Currently, her year is extended through 2021! Please follow her @meryle_art on Instagram

Meryl Engler grew up in Huntington Beach, California playing lots of different sports, hanging out on the beach and drawing as much as possible. Meryl made a big transition to attend Syracuse University where she studied sculpture, printmaking, religious studies and history, and also competed on the women’s rowing team. Next she attended graduate school at University of Nebraska-Lincoln for studio art with an emphasis in printmaking. This is where she developed her love of colorful woodcut prints. Meryl has shown in Lincoln, Syracuse, Los Angeles, Houston, and internationally. For the past three years, Meryl coached rowing at Lake Oswego Community Rowing outside Portland Oregon. She is so excited to explore Akron while getting to make art full time again at Rubber City Prints.

For the next year Meryl will be building her portfolio with a focus on woodcut in our Printshop! Please schedule a one-on-one instruction time with Meryl on Wednesdays 12-8pm or
