As the oldest art gallery in Park City, Meyer Gallery’s roots on Main Street span several decades and a legacy. Owner, Susan Meyer, purchased the gallery in 1997 from her parents, who bought the former First National Bank of Utah building in 1965 to create an art gallery. Today, Meyer Gallery thrives as a contemporary fine art gallery in Park City’s Historic District and is also listed with the National Register of Historic Places as well as being part of the Park City Museum’s Historic district tour.
Having grown up in Salt Lake City and Park City, Meyer is a local, which gives her an edge to finding new regional and local artists as well as fresh work in the area. Surrounded by art for most of her life, Meyer spent a great deal of time during her childhood visiting artist’s studios. She recalls driving through several Native American reservations so her parents could buy jewelry and art directly from the artists.
“What sets me apart from most galleries in Park City is my focus on Utah and regional artists, which is unusual for Park City. I look for art that is not solely for decoration but for curating a collection. It’s a wonderful quality for art to be thought-provoking and beautiful while still unambiguous enough for many generations to enjoy and benefit from. It’s a valuable quality to have accessible art and art that’s not too difficult to take in.”
Featuring both representational and abstract works in several mediums, Meyer Gallery presents an art experience that is approachable and thought-provoking at the same time. “It’s our goal for guests to enjoy a welcoming visit to the gallery and to provide customer service that exceeds expectation,” says Meyer.
Meyer Gallery is part of a very healthy art community in Park City. “Every state tends to develop an artist community, and Park City is definitely Utah’s area to buy art,” says Meyer. “Many galleries show a strong diversity of mediums. Having traveled on a national level to many different art districts, Park City’s old town is refreshingly easy and it is enjoyable to stroll from gallery to gallery.”
