"In a Flash" an Exhibition by Melissa Eggleston

The Arts Council presents "In a Flash" by artist Melissa Eggleston, a neo-naturalist artist from Bath, Michigan. Melissa's art is the record of her very real conversations with nature Anthropomorphic, surreal, and even abstract at times; it springs to life, incarnate with her humane and authentic voice. "In a Flash" is a reflection of her fascination with birds and flight. Melissa's exhibition will be at the Arts Council through the month of July. Join us for an opening reception on July 14 from 5-8 p.m. during Arts Night Out.
