Meryl McMaster is an Ontario-based artist and a BFA graduate from the Ontario College of Art and Design University (2010). McMaster is the recipient of various awards and scholarships including the Canon Canada Prize, OCAD Medal, and the Doris McCarthy Scholarship. McMaster has exhibited in various galleries including the Katzman Kamen Gallery, Gallery 44, MacLaren Art Centre, and the Station Gallery. Her work is in various private collections, the Canada Council Art Bank and the Donovan Collection. McMaster’s work goes beyond straight photography by incorporating manual production, performance and self-reflection to talk towards the ideas of identity, perception, myth, narrative, and the environment.

Over the next two months, billboards across Canada will feature art by Indigenous women. This vast linear gallery, with unprecedented visibility for women’s stories, is an act of cultural reconciliation. more
