Art on the Avenue

Frame and Hang Studio Gallery invites you to the opening night of their new show featuring Melissa Yeazell.  Melissa has been expressing herself through art for as long as she can remember. Her current media choices include acrylic on canvas, watercolor, and glass repurposing.Screen Shot 2016-03-04 at 8.04.05 AM

Her paintings express her emotions in the present moment, usually through intense colors and brush strokes and occasionally with words. She gives color to her hopes, successes, anxieties, hesitations, and stories of her heart and grounds them on the canvas. Her process is quick, covering the canvas with color. She then rotates the canvas 90 degrees once, twice, and sometimes three times, each view speaking to her differently on a soul level. The final expression might represent a figure or a place or an animal or whatever her soul desires, leaving her essence on the canvas.

Her glass work has been a new adventure in self-expression. The glass, spanning from the 1940s to 1980s, was discovered in a creek bed on the golf course that she tends to every day. The glass was used to shore up the sides of the creek. Each piece of glass she works with has a story, and she adds new glass or oil paint to give it new life that adds luster in many forms.
