Building a New Relationship / by Hayden Michelle

It seems fitting that in this week following reflections on gratitude, that I am able to share an exciting new relationship with Malton Art Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio.   This month I had the opportunity to bring my work to Gallery Owner, Syliva Rombis, and Gallery Director,  Brenda Campbell, for review, and was warmly welcomed into their gallery.

 "Malton Art Gallery has been in business since 1974, and is renowned for high quality contemporary fine art and sculpture, representing over 100 local, regional, national and international artists in a beautiful, contemporary, light-filled gallery, covering three floors and an outside sculpture garden.
 Sylvia Rombis specializes in site specific custom commissioned art installations, both in 2D and 3D concepts.  Her goal is connecting the client to the art, through the artist… to create compelling art for her client’s needs.

I experienced Sylvia and Brenda’s philosophy firsthand as they examined different pieces of my work.  They demonstrated a deep understanding of their clients’ preferences and visions... an understanding that grows only from close relationships with their clientele.

I am thrilled to have both my photography and encaustic sculpture represented by the Malton Art Gallery, and look forward to sharing my art in this new venue.  Below are images of new sculptural work to be hung as wall installations, a recent direction which I am delighted to explore...

"Moonrise", 2016, (32 x 36 x 3 in), (and details, below...)

 I am so excited to see where this new leg of the journey leads, and am thankful for the relationship with Brenda and Sylvia of the Malton Art Gallery.  If you are up in Cincinnati, stop by this gallery and see the unique contemporary art for which they are known!
