The back half of the Skinny Gallery is devoted to a joint exhibition by local artists Melissa and Richard Diegan. Melissa Diegan is a painter whose colorful, abstract works reflect her own sense of spirituality and love of intuitive process in art. 

Alongside her paintings are the expressive assemblage pieces of Richard Diegan II, who writes of his work, "A composition of found items are included in my work which include wood furniture, plumbing and electrical parts, musical instruments, car parts, circuit boards, tools, historic items [...] In all art, the whole must be greater than the sum of the parts, but in assemblage the challenge is more difficult since the parts have their own identities and implications."

See the Diegan's works throughout the month of March during our gallery hours, between 9 AM - 5 PM on weekdays. Meet the artists on ArtWalk night, March 9, between 6 – 9 PM.
