Melissa Meyer (born May 4, 1946) is an American painter. The Wall Street Journal has referred to her as a "lighthearted Abstract Expressionist".
Meyer received a fellowship at the American Academy in Rome in 1980, two National Endowment for the Arts grants (1983, 1993), the National Academy 183rd Invitational Eric Isenburger Annual Award (2008) and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2009). In the late 1970s Meyer and Miriam Schapiro collaborated on a Heresies article entitled Femmage.
In 1997 her sketchbooks were published in facsimile by the Mezzanine Gallery of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In 2001-2002, she completed two large lobby murals for the Shiodome City Center, designed by Roche-Dinkeloo and Associates, in the Minato district of Tokyo.
