WHEN: Saturday May 28 2022.
TIME: 9:30-1:30 pm
SPECIAL GUEST: Melanie Lieb. “I am a multi-dimensional fine artist. I like to say I was born with markers in my hands because my father, who was a cartoonist, started buying me markers when I was about three (mostly so I wouldn’t ruin his!) and from there my life as an artist began. I have been working in the arts and creative fields ever since.
I work in a multitude of media, from painting and drawing, to sculpture and installation, to jewelry design and fabrication. I went on to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Milwaukee Institute to Art and Design where I focused mainly on 2D arts and some sculpture. As a professional I have worked in fine art framing, floral design and teaching as well as running my own jewelry business, Nucleus Jewelry. Over the years I have been represented at many galleries and collectives with my conceptual fine art and installations, and I have been involved in projects with a wide variety of community arts organizations.
I am originally from the Chicago area but have lived in many places and I have now landed in Duluth where I hope to become integrated with the arts community and share my knowledge with the public.”
