“Remove your mask and throw it in the sea” Featuring the art of Melissa Monroe and p:ear youth

The p:ear gallery is thrilled to announce our February 2017 showcase of “Remove your mask and throw it in the sea” a new collection of work by Melissa Monroe.

Melissa states, “My artwork is a struggle between passion and self image.  A vulnerable display so pure the paintings act as a mirror; the viewer now sees their own mask. Even though the paintings themselves are only people wearing masks”.

Melissa Monroe is one of the fastest rising stars of the west coast art world.

Her daring use of color and composition has created dynamic and engaging art that communicates passion, emotion and self-reflection.
