Views From My Kaleidoscope
Hammonds House Museum launches our new FRESH Pop-Up Series with Views from My Kaleidoscope, works by emerging artist, Melissa Mitchell on May 18. FRESH provides a platform for emerging artists who catch our eye because of the quality of their work, potential and the way they approach the work.
Melissa Mitchell is an Atlanta-based, self-taught artist, who has a love for vibrant colors, unique shapes, and bold dark lines. What caught our eye about Melissa is that she expanded the business model of selling art by turning her favorite paintings into unique clothing, home décor and specialty textiles in true artrepreneur fashion.
This FRESH exhibition is co-curated by Fatuma Dinee and Ravi Windom. Fatuma Dinee is currently working on her Masters in Museum and Gallery Practice at University College London (UCL) in Qatar, Doha. Ravi Windom is an artistic programming specialist with 10 years of experience delivering artistic and cultural presentations.
