September 2018 – Community Gallery

Oil Paintings by Melissa Riley

September 5th – 29th, 2018

 

September Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10am‐5pm 

 


 

Artist Biography:

Melissa Riley earned her BA in art from Emmanuel College over 40 years ago. After spending 35 years in education, including 15 years teaching art, here in the Attleboro Public Schools, she has returned to her own personal art. Presently she is exploring expressionistic landscapes in oil and palette knife. Riley has had her work displayed in several exhibits at the Attleboro Arts Museum, the True Grit Gallery, Middleboro, MA and the Preservation Framer, North Attleboro, MA. 

 

 

Artist Statement:

A fellow artist commented at a recent exhibition regarding one of my pieces, Moonlit Forest – “Missy is taking a new direction in this piece.” This comment was everything to me for it solidified what I believe to be true with my approach to painting. To me, subject matter is no longer important. Instead how the paint, colors and shapes I create interact with the techniques and styles I am exploring become the focus. Using oil paints and most often just working with a palette knife, I am searching for the essence of a place. Whether real or imagined in an expressionistic or abstract style, I characterize my work as explorations in paint aspiring to make a connection with my creative spirit.
