Mel Odom at Georges Berges Gallery, New York

If you happen to be in New York you gotta check this one out, it will be on till October 8th:


New York City’s Georges Berges Gallery announces the debut of artist Mel Odom‘s paintings in conjunction with an adjacent one-man show by Michael Carson.  Odom’s work was recently featured on DRECK magazine and consists of a collection of doll portraits done in a highly personal style.  Many of the dolls depicted are from the mid-19th century and date back to the Civil War.  In the artist’s eyes, these are the  last of the Civil War widows and deserve notice.  The show opens September 8 and will be at the Georges Berges Gallery for a month.
