PHILIPS THOMAS MEYERS
New York, 1947
Philips Thomas Meyers is a prominent figure in the art community, renowned for his unwavering support of emerging artists. Born in New York to Albert T. Meyers from California and Lucrecia Meyers from Mexico, Phillips inherited a passion for art from his parents, who instilled in him a deep appreciation for the creative world. While pursuing his medical degree at Harvard University, Phillips displayed exceptional talent and graduated with honors. From an early age, Phillips immersed himself in the art scene, attending various artistic events alongside his parents. Inspired by their modest exhibition of drawings, Phillips expanded their collection to encompass diverse art forms. In late 2022, a fortuitous encounter with the organizers of the New York Latin American Art Triennial (NYLAAT) led to a collaboration to establish a residency program, exhibitions, and workshops on Governors Island. Under the PTM Contemporary label, Phillips is proud to announce an upcoming roster of artists who will be represented. This exciting venture builds upon his family's legacy and commitment to fostering artistic expression. With his profound dedication and visionary leadership, Phillips Thomas Meyers continues to shape the art landscape, providing invaluable opportunities for emerging talents to thrive and shine.
