Vanessa Michalak //
Everything I Ever Wanted
Opening Reception // Friday June 6th, 5-8pm
Driven by a love of nature and a desire to escape the urban environment, Michalak (a Portland, Maine native now based in Boston) uses unexpected color and inventive brushstrokes to create dreams of places familiar yet abstract. Deliberate and specific mark making is paired with experimental language as she strives to reconnect with the natural world.
Vanessa Michalak received her BSN in nursing from the University of Maine, Orono and her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2013. She was recently featured in New American Paintings' New England issue, out in Spring of 2014.
Read more about her process in this interview, and come say hello on Friday evening.
