Mei-Ling Hom

Mei-ling Hom is an artist based in Philadelphia whose art works explore Asian ideas from her American cultural perspective. She received an MFA in Sculpture from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University (1987) and has garnered numerous prestigious awards such as the Pew Fellowship in Visual Arts (1998), an NEA Visual Artist Fellowship (1994), a Joan Mitchell Foundation Visual Artist Grant (2005), and a Fulbright Research Fellowship to South Korea (2007). Her commissioned installation at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute (2005) entitled Floating Mountains Singing Clouds was the first such commission for an Asian American. Her two large-scale public art commissions are at the Philadelphia International Airport (2010) and the Raleigh Durham International Airport (2011).

A substantial commission

Gallery artist Mei-Ling Hom has won the art commission for the expansion of The Philadelphia Airport's Terminals D and E. Occupying the Hammerhead rotunda, the actual point of departure, Hom's installation will contain 35 large wire clouds, created by individually tweaking and weaving the hex cells of stainless steel netting, or chickenwire, as it's often known. An exhibition of similarly ethereal works inhabited the gallery in 2004, and can be seen on Hom's page in the artists section of the site. We offer sincere congratulations.

Mei-Ling Hom receives Fulbright

Very proud to announce that Gallery artist Mei-Ling Hom has received a Fulbright Scholarship, an award that will take her to Hongik University in Seoul, Korea, to interview and document contemporary Korean ceramicists. During the ten-month sojourn, from March to December 2007, Hom will also set up a studio and travel around the penninsula, and we eagerly await the fruits of this adventure.
