June & July featured artist | Melanie Biehle

Melanie Biehle is our featured artist for June & July this summer, and we couldn't be happier. We're in love with Melanie's fresh colors and clean graphics, and are loving her newest collection inspired by the architecture and energy of cities. The Abstract Cityscapes collection features layers of color in both gouache and acrylic, often criss-crossed with detailed line work. If you love patterns and color (who doesn't?!), this is a do-not-miss show.  We'll be ringing in the second month of Melanie's show on Thursday, July 7th. She'll be here from 6-9p with a fresh batch of new work that we're eagerly awaiting to see! Not...
