From City Life Org:
Meryl Meisler was born in the Bronx in 1951 and raised in Massapequa, a Long Island suburb of New York City. Meisler’s neighborhood was largely composed of Jewish and Italian families, although there were also Irish, German, Greek and other first and second generation Americans. Meisler’s Jewish roots and family dynamics are celebrated in many of the works in this exhibition. “Our parents taught us pride in our heritage and the importance of sticking together with family.” says the artist.
