Burbank resident in solo exhibition

BURBANK -- “Incarnate,” a solo exhibition by Monica Melograna, is

on display at the Chiropractic & Spinal Rehabilitation Center, 1411

W. Olive Ave., Suite A, Burbank.

A reception will be at 7 p.m. Friday. The exhibit continues until

June 21.

Melograna completed her bachelor’s degree at the Atlanta College

of Art in 1986. She participated in many group exhibitions and had a


solo exhibition at the college gallery. Since then she has displayed

work at several businesses including Brew Ha Ha and First USA Bank in

Wilmington, Del.

Now a graphic artist, she lives in Burbank with her husband and

two children.

Melograna uses human figures to express the emotions and

experiences of life.

“I let the work take me where it wants to go and rein it back in

when I need to,” she said. “People viewing it have their own feelings

and thoughts about it. It is to them, going to be different from the

person standing next to them and separate from what it is to me. I’d

rather not talk about what they mean too much. That way it stays

personal for the observers.”

The latest collection of large drawings, the smallest size being

22 inches by 30 inches, includes nine pieces. They were made using

oil pastel, charcoal and colored pencil.
