Sculptor finds Inspiration in Savannah
Indigo Sky Gallery
Comfort and cost of living brought renowned artist and sculptor Jerome Meadows to live, work and create out of Savannah. Now a veteran Savannahian, Meadows came to the area almost twelve years ago after living in metropolitan cities like New York City and Washington D.C.
“I saw this newspaper clipping that said ‘The next best thing to being your own boss is being your own landlord,’ he says. This struck a chord with the artist who was paying the high cost of urban rent for his art studio.
“I wanted to buy my own building but I couldn’t find anything that was affordable and suited my needs,” says Meadows.
He, of course, landed in Savannah, purchasing a formidable building on the east side, formerly a 1901 ice house. “Savannah is a very suitable place to come and focus in on doing your work,” he says. “And I really like being so close to the ocean.”
Meadows also appreciated the talent and creativity of local students.
“Savannah has a great cultural context to tap into and to draw from.”
Presently, Meadows is busy creating more personal work and developing the gallery. He is starting a new public art project in New Hampshire and excited about a recent proposal to do a major project at the Telfair Museum next spring on “cultural intervention.”
TCCa will too also team up with Meadows in the near future, hoping to showcase his gallery in an upcoming reception. “The art market/art culture realm here is still developing,” he says.
“The opportunity is there to make your mark and contribute to this community culturally.”
“That’s one of the reasons I started my studio here.”
