Art DeTour: Open Studio Melanie Wood

Dogwood Arts Open Studio with Painter Melanie Wood – May 5th & 6th

Local Impressionist Painter Opens Studio for Weekend Tour

Dogwood Arts presents a spring open studio tour with Melanie Wood. Local artist Melanie Wood will open her studio at 100 Craigland Court in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 5th and 6th from 10am -5pm and 1pm-5pm.  Melanie will showcase over 60 oil paintings that she has created throughout the year. Her work ranges from floral abstractions to foreign cityscapes; each painting as a unique perspective and a strong sense of color design.

“As an eternal optimist, my joy for living infuses every painting with a vibrant, impressionistic style. Painting is the result of my lifelong journey into self-discovery and translating the delights I encounter, both commonplace and extraordinary, into a personal vision for others to enjoy.” – Melanie Wood

“Working exclusively in oils, I strive to capture on canvas the energy and spontaneity that drive my love for each new day and fuel my imagination, whether it be violet haze over the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, the fields of Provence or courtyards of Sienna, poppies along a garden walk, or a red vase overflowing with sunflowers. I often incorporate abstract qualities throughout the paintings, invoking a dreamlike quality.” – Melanie Wood
