Canal Street Art Gallery presents: MELISSA RUBIN Represented Artist Spotlight opens JULY 1st, on view to the public through AUGUST 1st. 

All are invited to our Virtual Gallery Event on Bellows Falls 3rd Friday Gallery Night! We will be LIVE Online on FaceBook at 6PM JULY 17th. You can also visit the Gallery’s Online Viewing Room, open all the time on our website. Go to http://canalstreetartgallery.com to experience this new interactive format. Canal Street Art Gallery is also pleased to now offer Private Appointments, Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 5pm, during our regular scheduled business hours.


MELISSA RUBIN is Canal Street Art Gallery’s first Represented Artist Spotlight, the Gallery’s new way to feature individual artists and continue its mission of finding innovative ways to support the making, sharing, and seeing of art. Melissa Rubin, a New York City and Vermont-based artist, shares a selection of paintings using a mixed-media approach; including oil paints, encaustic (wax), powdered pigment and a variety of other materials. 

Featured in this Represented Artist Spotlight is Melissa Rubins’ work done as a direct result of being in the path of Hurricane Sandy: the artist's New York studio is located in Rockaway Beach, Queens. Canal Street Art Gallery is especially honored to present the last four works remaining from the artist’s ‘Fragments’ series. This series includes a total of fifteen artworks, directly referencing the shards of tiles and pottery cast up from the sea; the remnants of people’s homes that were strewn across the beach after the hurricane. 

Rubin, a recent participant with the Master Abstraction Residency at MASS MoCA, is also a recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation and a New York Foundation for the Arts grants, and has received a Fulbright Fellowship to Japan. Her art is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Encaustic Art in Santa Fe New Mexico, and has been featured in ARTnews Magazine, Encaustic Arts Magazine, on CBS This Morning.

“I choose materials that help to facilitate a sense of mystery and light, both internal and external. I think of my pieces as places to come to rest, both physically and emotionally, allowing the viewer a moment to reflect, looking outward as well as inward.” -Melissa Rubin
