In the Gallery (Rotates Monthly)
Featured Artist in the Gallery ~ Melody Asbury: A Spiritual Journey
Paintings by artist Melody Asbury will be on display in the Gallery Space at the Woodbury Public Library July 1 -31st during regular open hours. The collection, entitled “A Spiritual Journey”, was started prior to COVID but the isolation of that time furthered the journey inward even more for the artist.
Melody Asbury was raised in a creative household and started her art career doing portrait commissions, eventually becoming a courtroom sketch artist for television. Her interests soon became part of her work. Her love of animals led to her becoming a signature member of the International Society of Animal Artists. “A Spiritual Journey” has stemmed from the artist’s need to expand and push beyond the boundaries of only painting animals.
The show has a mix of animal paintings and some of her newer works inspired by dreams, inner journeying, and a return to printmaking. The monotypes were created in a class with master printer Anthony Kirk. Melody’s work has been widely collected and is in collections in both the United States and abroad. She has taught art and is a popular demonstrator for various art organizations.
For more information, contact the Woodbury Library at 203-263-3502 or www.woodburylibraryct.org. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, July 10, 2:00 – 5:00 pm. The artist will also be available in the Library’s Gallery Space during the AAW’s Arts Walk on July 17, 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
The recently renovated Library Gallery offers a beautiful space with lighting to highlight any work of art. Art is displayed on a monthly basis, and artists must apply for consideration.
