MEET THE ARTIST at our Herne Bay gallery this Saturday 5th August from 12pm-2pm

Orchestra Of Light

A solo show by Melanie Field

Opening night from 5pm-7pm, 27th July, 2023

Show runs 28th July - 12th Aug

We warmly invite you to join us for the opening of Orchestra Of Light, a solo show by emerging artist Melanie Field.

Auckland-based emerging artist Melanie Field will be presenting her first solo show at our gallery in Herne Bay.  All works shown are new and exclusive through The Frame Workshop & Gallery.


Melanie returned to study at the Browne School of Art after a successful career as an art director in the publishing industry. Her work is heavily influenced by nature and the mystical. Underlying elements of the natural world – energetics, pattern, rhythm, cyclical phases and relationships are some of her principal areas of interest. Her colour palette is drawn from personal experiences in nature, built up in many thoughtful layers on the canvas.

The exhibition, Orchestra of Light, is inspired by the invisible - hidden realms, what we don’t see, but what we sense. The feeling or energetic experiences in life - we all know how something ‘looks’ but how does it ‘FEEL?’.

Melanies works are incredibly thoughtful and complex, with some works taking months to come to final completion.

This exhibition is exciting as we will be showing Melanies stunning textile collaboration with Thread Design in the space, truly showing how art can be incorporated in everyday life.


In addition to the exhibition, there will be a ‘meet the artist’ event where Melanie will be discussing her works and sharing her textile collaboration with Thread Design. Stay posted for further details.
