Meredith Brickell’s work is developed in response to particular sites, especially those that reflect the impermanent nature of places and the ways that these places are continuously shifting and being redefined. She often works collaboratively with other artists and/or local residents in order to complicate her own relationship to a place. Brickell exhibits her work across North America and abroad and has been an artist-in-residence at the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center, (Denmark), Watershed Center (Maine) and Threewalls (Chicago). She has received numerous grants and awards, including a Creative Renewal Fellowship from the Indianapolis Arts Council and a Silver Prize from the Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan. Brickell holds a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a Bachelor of Art and Design from North Carolina State University and completed the Core Fellowship program at Penland School of Crafts (NC). She is an Associate Professor of Art at DePauw University in Indiana where she teaches courses in ceramics and community-engaged art.
