Melissa Short’s upcoming art exhibition is beyond the stars! According to Short, “T H E  P L A N E T S” is a seven part series of paintings that follows Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite, “The Planets, Op. 32.” This orchestral suite corresponds to the solar system. The concept of the work is astrological rather than astronomical, which is why Earth is not included. Each piece is intended to convey ideas and emotions associated with the influence of the planets on the psyche, which she titled the following:

I. Mars – The Bringer of War

II. Venus – The Bringer of Peace

III. Mercury – The Winged Messenger

IV. Jupiter – The Bringer of Jollity

V. Saturn – The Bringer of Old Age

VI. Uranus – The Magician

VII. Neptune – The Mystic
