RLPS started off 2017 by welcoming artist Melissa Carroll to the C.H. Walton Gallery. Melissa’s acrylics depict some of her father’s mineral specimens and bring color, shape, and texture to the gallery, brightening gray winter days. In her own words “I wanted to find that sweet spot between realism and abstract. I saw it and wanted to show it to others too.” You can find her website at https://melissacarrollart.patternbyetsy.com/ and her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MelissaCarrollArtDesign/. If you’re visiting our office, please take a moment to check out her work.
