“Animals Among Us,” an exhibit and sale of oil paintings by Melody Asbury, will open with a reception on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 2 pm to 4 pm and continue through Saturday, June 3.
Melody Asbury’s beautifully colored art reflects her desire to bring her viewers closer to the animals around us. At the start of her career she concentrated on portraits and that desire for intimate knowledge of her subjects is evident in her animal paintings. While she studies her subjects closely, in fields and pens, in order to understand their anatomy and characteristics, she has recently included birds of prey and other wildlife as subjects of her work.
Ms. Asbury has exhibited her paintings in numerous area galleries. In addition to the Washington Art Association and several other societies of artists, she is a Signature Member of the International Society of Animal Artists.
