Fascinating...she paints her subjects & photographs them...Artist Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it--literally.

Artist Alexa Meade paints live three-dimensional subjects and renders them -- for a moment or through the camera’s lens -- as two-dimensional expressionist works.

During daytime hours next week on Tuesday, August 4 and Wednesday, August 5 and evening hours on Thursday, August artist Alexa Meade will bring her performative and illusory painting techniques to our exhibition floor.
