The works of Melanie Ducharme
in The Fredrick Douglas Gallery at Gallery X.
May 26th – June 9th
opening reception May 29th 7-9pm
(in conjunction with Gallery X’s Q@X opening reception in the main gallery)
Melanie Ducharme’s work is a mixture of memory, emotion and identity. She uses herself, people in her life, and pop culture as inspiration. Like a visual journal, the image may be vague and surreal like a memory, or as strong and powerful as passion.
Her imagery takes its cues from childhood imagery, surrealism, graffiti and pop culture. Her work is personal, yet universal in its concepts.
Melanie has been exhibiting her work since 2001. She holds an associates degree in fine arts from the Community College of Rhode Island and a bachelors in fine arts with a concentration in graphic design/letterform from UMASS Dartmouth. Currently she is an artist member at Gallery X, a cooperative art gallery in New Bedford, and a contributing member of the Cocktail Club Podcast.
Gallery X is located at 169 William Street, in the heart of New Bedford’s Upper William Street Arts District in the historic 1855 First Universalist Church. Our hours are Wednesday thru Sunday from 11am – 3pm, and on the second Thursday of every month from 5 –9pm with exhibits and programming as one of the venues for AHA!
