Ann Meany is a very creative ceramic sculptor. Ann likes to create a variety of works. Her intention with her creations varies between bringing whimsical chatter, to serious social commentary.“I am fascinated by what is not said in conversations. Our Facebook/Instagram culture is about sharing perfect moments. What is it we don’t openly talk about and why? Our society has record levels of anxiety and depression. How can we begin to deal with this when everyone seems to have it all together? I asked several dozen people: What don’t you talk about? Their immediate answers ranged from body parts to political issues. My sculptures are inspired by these interviews and my own personal experiences.“ Ann Meany is a self-taught sculptor. She creates her hand built three dimensional work in her St. Paul, MN, studio. Her work has been exhibited in many galleries in the Twin Cities and she is currently showing at the Dow Gallery in St. Paul. Meany is an alumni of the Women’s Art Institute. She holds an MS in Exercise Science from the University of Illinois-Chicago and a BS in Mathematics from Marquette University. She is a Waldorf School teacher and an athlete.
