Melanie Fain's "Celebrating Nature"

March 22nd thru April 19th, 2014
Artist Reception - 3 p.m. - 6 p.m.


Preview Night - March 21st, 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Melanie's passion for nature is clearly reflected in her subtle, yet powerful works of art. For over 30 years, Melanie has brought the beauty and drama of nature to her collectors offering them an intimate view of the natural world. She translates her sensitive perceptions into elegant hand-colored etchings and watercolors.

Using a less is more philosophy, Melanie strives to capture attitude, mood, and personality through the use of positive and negative space, color, and composition.  Her goal is to give her viewers something from nature they can connect with.

Melanie makes her home in the Texas Hill Country, and travels across the United States in pursuit of her favorite subjects: birds, botanicals, insects, fishing, hunting, and breathtaking landscapes. Much of her field work is done with a camera, providing valuable reference from which to work in the quiet of her studio.

Melanie s dedication to her art has lead to inclusion in national and international exhibitions, feature articles, publication in books and numerous accolades. Her work is in private and corporate collections across the United States and abroad. 

I have always been drawn to nature - it is my livelihood, my recreation, my comfort, my home.  It is who I am and what I know best.   -  Melanie Fain
