Ann’s work merits attention...
provocative, political and self expressive.
A strong minded and dedicated artist Ann makes art that is up front and easily conveyed to a wide audience as her message deals with contemporary issues completely relevant to the world we live in.
Ann’s work is often both subtle and acute, a contrast to the intensity of their meaning. Her work stimulates discussion about subjects, which are too often ignored or avoided by the general public.
-Agnes Gund, President Emerita Museum of Modern Art New York
The first images one sees when entering the Museum are Ann ’s black and white photographs of HIV positive women and children.
Most arresting was Eleana y Rosa, the Ellipse at the White House, Washington, DC which depicts a gaunt, exhausted-looking young girl in the embrace of her mother, who crouches beside her.
We need to see these images of HIV-Positive women of color in Meredith’s work.
Art in America
The exhibition is particularly valuable for revisiting the Art of Ann P Meredith who early on, traveled the United States documenting the lives of women living with HIV/AIDS.
The New York Times
Ann P. Meredith’s work is both innovative and important. I have known and respected Ann for many years and continue to be impressed by both her artistic vision and the quality of her scholarship. Ann’s work has distinguished her and gained the attention and respect of her peers.
-Marcia Tucker Director Emerita
The New Museum of Contemporary Art
Ann is exceptionally talented. Her Art in particular has had a great impact on the world at large as she has engaged some of the most urgent and at times overlooked situations in our society.
Her documentary on women who suffered with AIDS was instrumental in focusing our attention for the first time on this particular segment of the AIDS pandemic.
-Lowery Stokes Sims Director Emerita and Trustee The Studio Museum in Harlem, Curator Emerita Museum of Arts and Design, Kirk Varnedoe Visiting Professor, Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, Associate Curator Emerita 20th Century Art The Metropolitan Museum
I experience Ann and her Art as a force for Good. She pursues her dreams and commitments; she is an inspiration. Her unflinching courage and innate sense of finding the essence of people are remarkable.

Ann is someone whose work I hold in high esteem. Ms. Meredith’s hybrid form of expression produces vivid and powerful works that often discomfort the viewer.
I value the unique combination of aesthetic, personal and socio-political elements that Ann brings to bear in her work.
This particular power is found only in art of the highest caliber and ambition.

On every subject she touches...
Ann P Meredith's courageous lens shines the white hot light of Truth.
...Many of which others fear to face.

Ann brings a heartwarming empathy and sensibility to all of her work.
She cares for people and has the capacity of establishing a rapport with them that adds much to the import of whatever story she pursues.
Ann is a dedicated and intelligent Artist.
