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!

CARNIVORE week 4 - Felis Catus

Michele Melcher

There are more than 70 domestic cat breeds and unlimited mixed breeds.  Cats are valued world wide by humans as one of the most popular pets and hunters of vermin. They are prolific breeders and it is important to spay and neuter pets as well as feral colonies to prevent overpopulation and the consequent suffering of the animals. Contact your local animal shelter or favorite rescue to donate and support their work or adopt a great cat friend into your family!

Great Grey Owl

The Great Grey Owl is documented as the larges species of owl by length in the world. It ranges across the Northern Hemisphere and is the only species of Strix found in both Western and Eastern Hemispheres. Due to their large size, adult birds have few natural predators. The greatest threat to this species is the harvest of timber and the clear cutting of dead trees which adults depend on for perching while hunting and full canopy protection for juvenile birds.

Michele Melcher

Giant River Otter

The Giant River Otter is the largest member of the weasel family reaching up to six feet in length. It ranges across north-central South America, living mostly in and around the Amazon River and in the Pantanal.  Due to fur poaching in the 1950's and 60's it has been listed as endangered since 1999 with wild populations estimated at below 5000. It is the most social species of the weasel family, living in family groups of three to eight members.
