Here’s a link to my interview on The Graphic Ear (WAYO 104.3 FM). We talked about paintings, my favorite tunes, & more. Check it out: Graphic Ear
“In this edition of Graphic Ear on WAYO 104.3 FM we talk to painter Melissa Huang about her crystal paintings, her supportive parents, attending RIT, interning in Washington DC, her living room studio, working with gold leaf, her painting process, and much more!”
I have two pieces in Matter+Form, a group show of emerging artists at the Phelps Art Center. This show includes work by myself (Melissa Huang), Rose Haserodt, Zach Goetz, Nadia Adams, Shakiyla Jamison, James Cody Kross, Gareth Barry, Judy Kinz, and Muhammad Imran Aslam. Muhammad organized and curated Matter+Form and is a very talented figurative sculptor. Be sure to check out his Tumblr to see new work!
The Phelps Art Center is also exhibiting 3-Dimensional Views, featuring the work of Olivia Kim, Wayne Williams, and Robert Fladd.
The Phelps Art Center is a nonprofit art gallery in Phelps, NY, located in a beautiful old church. It is a truly unique space for artwork.

Last month I spent three weeks in Makaha on Oahu. It was a beautiful and relaxing experience. I was able to bring some watercolor supplies with me and get some landscape painting done!
These are just quickly grabbed off of my instagram account (@melissahuangart yo!), so the quality is so-so. But you get the idea!
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to work from such beautiful scenery and to practice my plein air painting skills.
I submitted my studio space at Rochester Institute of Technology for Hyperallergic’s A View from the Easel back in early March, and they just posted it now! I’m already nostalgic for my RIT studio space and can’t wait to make a new one.
I spent most of this weekend apartment hunting, hanging out on my porch, and painting. So overall, it was a fun time! I manages to quickly paint one 12″ x 9″ oil on canvas and one 5.5″ x 5.5″ watercolor.
I still have one day of vacation left, so hopefully I can start work on a bigger project this afternoon. I can’t wait for a new apartment so I have room to work on bigger paintings!
