Local Art @ EPL: Melanie Deal

July 6, 2017

“INFJ” (paper collage)

We’re thrilled to welcome Melanie Deal as the next featured artist in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. Her exhibit Life on the Grid is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library where you can catch it through July 31st. Inspired by her fascination with grids, tessellations, and repeated shapes, Deal’s striking paper collage and mixed media works “reflect both the humdrum and the humor of everyday living”  and are “influenced by a lifelong love of comic books, paper dolls, gumball-machine trinkets, board games, television, literature, and music.” You can learn more about Deal’s work by visiting her website, and make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in July for a featured interview with the artist herself. Stay tuned.



Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
