15 Seconds of Art: Melissa Short’s Interstellar Adventure

Melissa Short

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

You can see a preview of Melissa’s work on our Instagram page: thirtythirdwheel

You can see Melissa’s exhibit “T H E  P L A N E T S” at The Library Express Bookstore on Friday January 5, 6 p.m.-8 p.m.  located at 300 Lackawanna Ave, Scranton PA, 18503.

Mixed Media painting by Sam Kuchwara

Sam Kuchwara is a gifted local artist in the Scranton area, which he writes about his work:

Most of my work consists of landscape paintings; mixed media pieces or a combination of the two, creating a surface out of found objects then painting directly over it.  Using found objects not only gives me a chance to reuse what might go to waste. This directs me by the color and texture of the material, and within the finished piece, found objects provide texture and can bring about a wider variety of associations and memories from the viewer. I am especially inspired by music as I feel using a variety of media is similar to sampling and try to recreate moods, imagery, and textures that songs remind me of.

Sam is also having an upcoming exhibit at Northern Light Espresso Bar on September 1, from 6-9 p.m for September First Friday.
