Eclectic Eye Art Show featuring Melissa Bridgman and Martha KellyNovember 3, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm
Eclectic Eye will be hosting an opening reception for their new art installation on November 3. The artists are Melissa Bridgman and Martha Kelly, who are pairing up to debut their “Skyward” series on ceramics and oil on paper. The two have worked together previously, but this will be the first time they will present their “cloud work” together.
Martha Kelly is a Memphis native with experience in painting, illustration and carving prints. She had a landscape show at Dixon Gallery and Gardens in 2015, and her new project is 16 block prints illustrating the upcoming Book of Common Worship for the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A., due out in March 2018.
Melissa Bridgman is a potter and teaching artist at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and has a BA in history and American studies from Salem College in Winston-Salem, NC, and a MA from the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi, where she earned experience in fieldwork with self-taught religious artists.
