Article in The Corsair for "In Memory of Water" and "Onward" Opening Night at La Luz De Jesus Gallery.

Michele Melcher

When we went out to LA for the opening of Matthew Couper’s solo show, “In Memory of Water”, and the group show, “Onward”, that my work is featured in, I did a short interview with local news outlet “The Corsair”. You can read The Corsair here. Many thanks to artist, Matthew Couper, Billy and Matthew at La Luz De Jesus and writer, Stan Misraje for the link. Photos courtesy of Glenn Zuchman.

West Coast and East Coast May Show Recaps!

Michele Melcher

It’s been a busy week of travel to LA and and then onto Buffalo, New York for two back to back show openings. “Onward” opened at La Luz De Jesus gallery in LA on May 3d and runs until June 2nd. It was an amazing experience to have had the opportunity to go out there and meet the the people running the gallery as well as some of the other artists.

'“Transcendence”, a three artist show that I am in, opened this past Friday at Revolution Gallery in Buffalo, NY. The show is up until June 14th. We had the pleasure of seeing some familiar faces from the last time I showed at the gallery and got to spend a little time with those folks over the weekend.

Both of the shows and galleries have top notch art in them and it’s super inspiring to see it all. If you are in LA or Buffalo, please stop in and see the shows in person. If not, check out the links above. There are so many artist peers whose work that I have admired for years from afar on Instagram, websites and the like, it’s such an honor to be invited to the party. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment.

As an artist, you are never “done”. You are always absorbing and learning and evolving. Some things work out and some things do not - but you are always pushing forward. I am SO GRATEFUL to all the curators, gallerists, artists, collectors and art fans who I’ve met in person or online the past couple of months that have taken notice, shared, promoted and purchased my work. Thank you for lifting me up. There’s a lot more to come.

"Origins and Beyond" at Parlor Gallery, Asbury Park

Michele Melcher

"Origins and Beyond" opened this past Saturday night at Parlor Gallery, Asbury Park. It was the second opening for me in a week! I didn't get a chance to take a lot of pix that night because I was chatting but here are a few. I'm so grateful to my friends who took the time out of their crazy busy schedules and trekked all of the way out to the Jersey shore to show their support. And, of course, super heart eyes and kisses to Brian, my always supportive second half. SO MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF YOU!

It is a really great show - surrealist oils, geometric art, 3-d art, nature inspired themes - go check it out if you get a chance. If you can't make it to Asbury Park, you can see it online at Parlor Gallery. The show is up until October 30th.

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!
