SWILL Coffee and Wine is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Nevada artist Marilyn Melton. The “Health Blooms Show” will run from January 3 to January 31, 2019 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 10 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 3366 Lakeside Ct, Reno NV 89509. All sales and proceeds benefit the Community Health Alliance (CHA) Foundation.
All 12 works are watercolor pieces of various flowers in inspired pots. Featuring colors that are often explosive, Melton’s work shows versatility and skill.
“I wanted to showcase the depth of a Nevada garden to bring the outside in,” said Melton. “I chose to benefit the work of CHA because I believe that helping children, families and individuals gain access to vital medical and dental services is critical for the overall health of our community”.
Melton is a third generation native Nevadan who studied art at the University of Nevada, Reno. She has served on many local boards, engaged in community activism for human services, the arts and environment, been a co-owner of an art gallery, and has shown her work in a variety of locales.
In addition to the original works, prints, posters and greeting cards are available for purchase. For additional information about art purchases please contact Emelie Williams, 775-870-4356.
