New Art Exhibition at Bar 821 presenting Melissa Wagner

August 23, 2010

With a background in scientific illustration, Melissa Wagner’s work uses a variety of methods and media to engage the natural world and illuminate its earthly remnants. A disparate falling of leaves, scattered branches, crushed shells, and dried ferns, emerge from a paintings surface to create organic three-dimensional works that incorporate intense color, texture, and a perpetually changing surface.

Melissa’s work has been showcased extensively throughout the United States and Europe.  For more information check her webpage:
