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.

Scroll below to see some highlights from the LA trip and the Buffalo trip.
