Inside Out

"Carving Bedrock" Copyright 2009 Melynda Van Zee

Inside Out, an art show featuring Melynda Van Zee’s abstract and conceptual acrylic paintings, will open Tuesday, July 28 from 7-9 pm at the new Studio 201 above the Galerie of Pella. An artist presentation will be held at 7:30 pm. The show will be open during regular business hours until August 25, 2009.

Melynda’s new work is focused on inner landscapes, unseen realities and spiritual explorations. Melynda shares, “I’m endlessly fascinated with journeys-the journey each of us takes as we discover the path we were created to walk in life. I enjoy painting as I journey. The paintings are a brief glimpse in vivid color of my own experiences, emotions and prayers. My biggest challenge has been to allow myself to paint the good… and the difficult, the beautiful… and the painful-to allow the breadth of my life to find its way onto the canvas.”
