two shows

Currently I have a solo exhibit at the Rome Arts and Community Center (Rome, NY). The entire building is absolutely beautiful and the gallery in which my work is hanging is an excellent venue with lots of natural light. The show will be up until September 4th, for anyone interested who lives locally. I am really pleased with the way it all looks. The 24 pieces are coherent. I also was part of a group show at Utica College last month and really think that Joe Fryc, the curator, did a great job. Was happy to have Kyle Reicker's digital collages as part of the show. Great work!

some other "Alaskollages"

by Melanie Barnes


I just returned form an Alaskan cruise on Royal Caribbean's "Radiance of the Seas". I am happy to report that the on-board artwork along the hallways included these collages! The lighting for these photographs is not the best, but I couldn't do much about it without professional photography equipment. I'm just happy that collage got some "respect" from this corporate entity. These three are cut paper compositions by Willemein Stevens...
