Autumn Art Shows

Michele Melcher

So I know that I haven't been the greatest at keeping up on the blog this past year. I have good reasons - we sold our house, moved to to an apartment, bought another house and moved all in the span of 6 months. Plus w/ deadlines and trying to get more fine art time in the studio - updates here have not been a priority for me.

BUT I did want to let you know that I have some awesome news on the fine art front. This Saturday is the opening of CULT OF MEOW at Gristle Art Gallery in Brooklyn. It is an art show celebrating all things cat. My spooky piece, "Familiar", will be on display along with an epic lineup of other artists. I will be at the reception which is 7-9 pm at the gallery this Saturday the 9th. Cult of Meow runs from September 9th until late October so if you are in NYC go and check it out!

NEXT UP: I will have 5 of my original CARNIVORE pieces on view and for sale as part of a group show in conjunction with the opening of ORIGINS at Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ, on September 16th. I will also be at that opening, so stop in and say hello if you are able to.

FINALLY: I'm excited to be a part of Modern Eden Gallery's group show "Familiar" - which will run November 3rd through December 1st. I'm in the early stages of planning a brand new piece for this opening and my mind is swirling with new ideas for such a great topic. I love mystery, history, folklore and all things magical so this is totally up my alley. Stay tuned for sneak peeks!

In the mean time, follow me on Instagram @michelemelcherillustration for more regular updates (and fun peaks into this weirdo existence of mine) as well as Facebook @michelemelcherillustration (if the algorithm allows you to see my posts! EYEROLL)

Anyway, have a spectacular September - onto Autumn!

Portrait of Amy Schumer for Printers Row Magazine

Michele Melcher

Illustration is like opening a present - you never know who or what you will be asked to draw. This week I was super excited to be asked to draw comedian, Amy Schumer, whom I adore! The portrait is for the cover of this weeks' Chicago Tribune Printers Row Magazine and supports the review of Schumer's new memoir, "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo".

I just completed this portrait of MicroStrategy CEO, Michael Saylor, for the cover story ofweek's edition of the Washington Business Journal.  The article is about the questions he is facing after a major reshuffling of the the company.  

Many thanks to Jamey at WBJ for the art direction!
