Anyone for Tea?

Hello! this month we have doubled the reasons for visiting the gallery with not one but two shows up on the walls. Alongside Barnaby Purdy's excellent Visitants robots we have a super tea themed show by newcomer to Falmouth Melanie Chadwick. Melanie is an artist living and working in the UK. She graduated in 2002 with a degree in Fine Art and from 2006-2008 had the opportunity to live in Hong Kong. Since returning to the UK she has been developing her own art practice in painting, illustration and design.

"I have exhibited my fine art in galleries around the North East of Scotland, and am building my Mellybee brand where I showcase quirky illustrations ready for print, textiles and web. More recently I have been creating illustrations for children’s books. I sell via etsy and other independent boutiques both online and on the street."

All of Melanie's work is very affordable and would make great presents for Easter, as well as lasting longer and having a lot less calories than Easter eggs too.

You can see Melanies work in the gallery throughout April and May.
