For Immediate Release:

Melina Scotte Featured at Addison Center for the Arts in Celebration of Arts DuPage Month

The Addison Center for the Arts is proud to unveil a solo exhibition featuring the vibrant paintings of Melina Scotte as part of their annual Arts DuPage Month celebration. Opening on September 20, 2023, and running until October 28, 2023, this exhibition shines a spotlight on the captivating artworks by renowned painter and muralist, Melina Scotte. The Addison Center for the Arts cordially invites art enthusiasts and the community to experience a collection of art works that “feed the soul.” The exhibition will be highlighted by an artist reception on Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, providing an invaluable opportunity to engage with the artist.

Julie Mars, the ACA’s director of communications praises Scotte’s work, “Originally from Argentina, Scotte has a true multicultural grasp of how people from around the world have so much in common. Work like hers can bridge cultural differences and unite communities.”

The exhibit, Melina Scotte, displays the artist’s intent to allow viewers to see something from their own perspective and to be able to transmit beauty and imagination through each piece.

Scott says, “I believe that society expresses change in relation to what is around us, and what surrounds us affects what we become. If people surround themselves with beauty and harmony, we as a society will be more inclined to be kind to one another. I am always looking to inspire people to be creative and to look for those things that feed the soul.”

Melina Scotte not only serves as an embodiment of individual artistic expression but also stands as a testament to the vigorous arts landscape of the western suburbs of Chicago. The artist reception on October 7th provides an opportunity to engage directly with Melina Scotte, gain insights into her creative process, and explore the inspirations behind her colorful artworks.

Melina Scotte's creations, characterized by gestural brushwork, intricate textures, and glorious color, have garnered her a distinguished position within the art community. Through this dedicated exhibition, we celebrate her contributions to the art and culture, aligning seamlessly with the Addison Center for the Arts’ mission to nurture creativity and enhance lives through the arts in DuPage County and beyond.
