MERV SLOTNICK (b.1941) American artist living in Maine. He was born in Lansing, Michigan, and received degrees from Adrian College, Central Michigan University, with additional work at Michigan State University. He did his first etchings in 1965 under the supervision of Theo Wujcik at the Center For Creative Arts, in Detroit, Michigan. Slotnick was one of 50 artists invited to exhibit in the SANCTUARY exhibition at Concordia College, Morehead, Minn. This was the Peace Prize Forum Invitational Exhibition at Concordia College who was the host of the 15th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum, 2003. Held in cooperation with the Norwegian Nobel Institute in Oslo, Norway. Slotnickís work is in many private collections throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, France, etc. His work has been included in exhibitions at New York University; Maine Biennial; Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY; Mansfield State College, Pa.; Ball State Univ.; Edison Community College, Cape Coral, Florida; Center For The Arts, Midland, Michigan; Central Michigan Univ.; Saginaw Art Museum; Provincetown Art Association; Grand Rapids Art Museum; Battle Creek Arts Center, Mich.; Northern Arizona Univ.; Alaska Pacific Univ., plus others. His work was also included in the All Michigan Artists Traveling Show [1970-73] which traveled to various colleges & universities in Michigan. In 1991, Slotnick was the sole juror for the Warwick Art Museum [Rhode Island] Annual Exhibition. Two examples of his work were exhibited in AMERICAN WORKS ON PAPER [1991] at Northern Arizona University and Alaska Pacific University. In 1989, Virginia Mecklenburg, Head Curator, Painting & Sculpture, National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian, selected one of his works on paper for inclusion in the 16th Texas Visual Arts Association National Exhibit. During the 1980s Slotnick had a large studio of 7800 sq. feet in Berwick, Maine. During this period he made almost exclusively much larger work than he now makes. At that time, because of the distance between home and studio, he found himself either spending too much time in the studio, or too much time at home away from the studio. For this reason he gave up what was a dream studio to make his art at home. Never intending to make small art he found after several years that everything became smaller and therefore more intimate. He liked this and began to distrust largeness as he got more deeply involved with paper and the closeness that is present when making small works of art on paper.
