Boylan Heights Artwalk ~ December 6, 2015

Riverfest ~ November 21+22, 2015
Downtown on Water Street ~ Wilmington, NC
We have a new date for Riverfest! October's historic rainfall postponed the event but can't stop us from trying again in November!

I will be in booth #55 on Water Street near the Hilton Hotel. Hope you can make it!

First Friday Featured Artist ~ November 6, 2015
The Carter Building ~ Raleigh, NC

For First Friday in November, I will be the featured guest artist at the studio of Erika Doss Photography. I am thrilled to share Erika's space for a night. She is an amazing documentary photographer and videographer, creating both fine art photographs and heartwarming time capsules for families. Her work is incredibly unique and always moving ~ something for every artist to aspire to! So for First Friday in November, come find both me and Erika in studio 18C on the second floor of the Carter Building, 14 Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh.

Melsie Glass will be set up on Monday, October 26th at Yelp's Night Market at the Ritz in Raleigh. Yelp events are always the MOST fun, with lots of food, drinks, and merriment. Add in some local craft vendors, food trucks and a zombie fashion show, and -BAM!- it's a Halloween party, too! Hope to see you there! RSVP on the Yelp event, Facebook, or just show up at the door. Can't wait to see you there!

Melsie Glass will have a booth set up at the Durham Arts Council's 41st Annual Centerfest in downtown Durham, NC.
