Just in time for fall, we're featuring a harvest show by

Melissa Buckley of 

Rusty Button Studio

Beginning Tuesday September 23rd



Melissa describes her artwork saying, "assemblages and collages combine my love of creating with my love of treasure hunting and collecting. I am inspired by the leftovers from the past; broken dolls, orphaned family photos, pieces of rust; and the nostalgic feelings they evoke."

Melissa works intuitively, often without a plan.  She says,  "At times, the found object is the inspiration for the work. At other times it's a story I want to tell. My assemblage and collage work serves to honor these objects of our past by keeping their story alive, while at the same time, giving them a new one to carry into the future."

We are excited to showcase her work which evokes a feeling of fall decomposition, craft, collecting, harvesting, and a beautifully haunting sense of spirituality.
