As a part of WINGSPAN renovations, seven artists were chosen to create new artwork for the airport. The first of those pieces was installed on July 6 in the B concourse. The oil paintings were done by local artist Melissa Anderson who chose to create scenes from around the Upstate.
Melissa didn’t start off as an artist. She left a career as a lawyer to pursue her passion and now her art can be found throughout the state and country. Through self-directed training, Melissa used the discipline of her law practice and applied it to her artistic education. Today, her work is displayed all over Greenville in numerous private and public collections including: The Greenville Art Museum, The City of Greenville, County Bank, McCall Hospice House, the Washington office of Congressman Trey Gowdy, and The Cascades. While she lives and works in Greenville, her current show “Elegance of Native Soul” is hanging in Mitchell Hill located in downtown Charleston.
