About this Event
Artist in Residence at the InterContinental Miami
Mondays 5PM - 7PM (EST)
Warehouse 4726 and InterContinental Miami Hotel present Noche de Arte, a weekly happy hour event featuring a Miami-based artist exploring new materials and techniques to create new works.
You are invited to join us Mondays in the lobby as locally acclaimed artists bring their works to life around the Hotel's famed Henry Moore "Spindle" sculpture.
For the second week of the residency, we'll be live streaming from the Lobby to introduce the artist and discuss work and techniques.
July Artist in Residence is Melinda Gallop.
Each Monday in July, Melinda will create works with her "brushless" technique, using hands, sponges, cardboard and other materials to create her next masterpiece.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Melinda Gallop is a “Self Taught - Brushless Fine Artist” who has traveled the country, creating and selling her original masterpieces since 2010. One would be hard-pressed to find a person more varied in her interests and talents than Melinda. In addition to being an artist she is also a National, International, and World Champion Martial Art Competitor. As a 8th Degree Black Belt Melinda serves as a member of the Board of Directors of “World Tiger Crane Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Organization.”
She has practiced the martial arts since the early 70’s, growing up in Palmetto Bay, Florida, while working at McDonalds where she was robbed at gun-point and made to crawl into their freezer. An introvert with low self-esteem until that point, she signed up for self-defense karate classes the very next day, and the story began there.
Melinda has participated in 100’s of Art Festivals including Not-for-Profit events, contributing her work for live or silent auctions, always painting “LIVE” and “BRUSHLESS.” Her work is executed without a paint brush, using her hands, a sea sponge, and various sizes of cardboard to move paint and other media across the canvas.
