Ascension Fine Arts is hosting “Lasting Impressions”, a special exhibit of work by Melissa Mann Bean. The show will hang from June 21st through July 17th, with an artist’s reception on June 24th from 4:00-7:00 PM.
Melissa Mann Bean grew up in the country where she spent her childhood drawing and creating a magical world to play in. At university she formalized her art, graduating with a fine arts degree in graphic design and photography. Her current work is mixed media. Mann Bean says, “My work has always involved images and text. Using a variety of mediums I create layers with text and illustrations.” She loves looking through old books to find something that inspired another reader, then use those pieces in her work. She collects antique books, reusable surfaces like windows, wood and canvases, and unique pieces of art and furniture.
