Hespe Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new mixed media works by Melissa Hutton. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday, October 6, 2011 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. The exhibition will continue through October 29.
Melissa Hutton will have her second solo exhibition at the Hespe Gallery in October. Hutton’s work explores the complexity of the American landscape and psyche. Thematically her work touches on isolation, fear, destruction and ultimately resilience. Greed and waste are subjects that are also explored, the beauty of the long stretch of farmland, cut in half by desolate roads and ramshackle barns. Hutton’s use of resin is a deliberate choice; the glossy surface serves as a metaphor for the American cultural obsession with excess and opulence.
