New York, New York
Voices Gallery

About Melissa

Melissa has had a lifelong fascination with old family photos. She invites you to join her on a search through her colorful paintings: eavesdrop on a phone call, go grocery shopping in Mill Basin, come see the new baby, eat a bagel on the lower east side of Manhattan. She has studied at the New York Academy of Art, The Art Students League, and under the tutelage of painter Lisa Zwerling. She has shown her work at 440 Gallery in Brooklyn, O’Flaherty’s in Manhattan, and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

About Georgie

Her studies in Life Sciences have fueled her insight in environment preservation and philosophy, which transcends through her work’s subject matter. Her work pays homage to the African and Indigenous diaspora while highlighting nature and biodiversity. Georgie is an AT&T Black Future Makers honoree.
