Biography from Jane Meyer Fine Art:
Cynthia Archer became partner with Will Petersen and co founder of Plucked Chicken Press in 1978, a hand lithography workshop dedicated to publishing original limited edition lithographs.  She exhibited lithographs and won several regional awards in West Virginia.  In 1979, they moved the press to Chicago, Illinois, and  Archer becane known for her large colorful, mythelogical lithographs.

In 1987, the Chicago International Art Exhibition features her painted vessels.  She continued exhibiting and publishing prints until 1994 when PCP closed down shop. No longer a lithographer, Archer continued to paint and design.  Her largest commission to date is the stained glass window The Sun’s Candle, installed in Old Wheeler Hall, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.  Her most fun? A painted bench for the Chicago Children’s Museum.
