Melanie Schiff, A Young Rising Art Photography Star, her New Show Opens!

Melanie Schiff... A Young Rising Art Photography Star's new show opens in Chicago.

So.. check this artist's new work out! She truly paints with light like no other young new photographer.

As you all probably know, MAO got to meet this young photographer about 3 years ago, when she had just graduated from Art School and was having her very first gallery show. As a contemporary art collector one of the greatest joys is getting the opportunity to watch a new young artist's career take off.

Her credits already including shows at the Chicago MCA, and the 2008 Whitney Biennial,

Melanie has a new body of work now opening up in Chicago at the Kavi Gupta gallery. (Photo #1, Melanie Schiff, Light Pipe,2009,digital c-print mounted and framed,31 1/2" x 35" framed,edition of 5)
