Tweed Meyer seems very much an artist of the moment.

While she works in the traditional vein of impressionistic en plein air painting, penciling and pastels, she literally works in the moment, while it’s happening. No sketches from memory, no photographs to sit an contemplate days later at the easel. Meyer seems to bring her easel almost everywhere she goes.

“Until you’ve seen her working out of the back of her station wagon on a bridge in the rain, or sketching the subtle nuances of a cafe scene, you have yet to truly experience the work of Tweed Meyer,” her Web site, www.tweedmeyer.com reads.

For more than 30 years, she’s been creating and selling her art in South Puget Sound scene. For 30 years, her style is pleasantly unrefined. It’s like a loose and impressionistic record. Almost like a court room sketch artist.

Whether she’s sitting amongst the ancient Cedars of the Olympic Peninsula, or in a booth surrounded by musicians and intellectuals at The Swiss in Tacoma, the artist seeks to capture and record “a tangible piece of the moment.”

She’ll be showing this month at the Sidney Museum and Arts Gallery, 202 Sidney Ave. in Port Orchard.

An artist’s reception is slated for 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8.
