Close Up, a new book by Annette Meyer, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Color, line, shape, and subject influence the view of the beholder. In turn, the beholder influences the view offered via personal experience and wishful thoughts.

Close Up exaggerates the authors' own personal impressions and expressions of the internal landscape of a room. Although Close Up may have different consequences for others, for Meyer it contains the warmth and comfort of familiar objects.

At the same time, Close Up transforms these objects into visual giants seeking to overpower the surrounding space.

Art is Annette Meyer’s first love. It inspired her to win the Wanamaker Medal in a New York City-wide painting competition when she was in nursery school. Later, she had exhibitions in gouache and oil paintings and pen-and-ink drawings in New York and New Jersey.

More than 500 of her works in various media are in private and public collections, including Special Collections at Hunter College (CUNY); School of Business at The College of New Jersey; Chemistry Department at Brooklyn College (CUNY); Art Students League, New York; and in the artists’ file at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York.

Moses Soyer at Brooklyn Museum and Harry Sternberg at Art Students League were among her teachers. Meyer was the Associate Director of Key Gallery, 57th Street, New York, for five years. She is a life member of the Art Students League.

Close Up is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $28.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-8028-1. Rose Dog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania published it. For more information or to request a review copy, please visit our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
