Four Barrel Coffee is pleased to present “Roadways, Tributaries + Branches” by Melissa Wagner. With a background in Scientific Illustration, Melissa Wagner works with a variety of methods and media to engage the natural world and illuminate its earthly remnants. Stories emerge from a painting's surface and overlay the mystery and magic of everyday images with texts and cartography that invoke the act of looking forward; letting the lines and paths lead, taking a moment to observe and create one's own narrative. Through her work, Melissa strives to examine and magnify the disguised processes that envelope the living world while addressing issues concerning reproduction and the environment. Mixing the products of nature themselves with glossy synthetic resin coats, Melissa playfully composes her vision of a world that harnesses natural subjects to construct new models where art, earth, science, and wonder intersect. Melissa draws her inspiration from her love of nature and extensive local and global travels. Join us on Friday,September 28th from 6-8pm for the opening reception for this exhibition. Drinks will be served and the artist will be in attendance. Four Barrel is a cafe and roastery that has been supporting artists with exhibitions since 2008. This exhibition is free and open to the public. Four Barrel Coffee is located at 375 Valencia Street in San Francisco, and open from 7am until 8pm daily.
