We are delighted to announce that Melissa Monroe, formerly a guest artist at The Road Gallery, has taken up a permanent spot in the gallery. To celebrate the occasion, we have added a number of new pieces from her most recent series of work to our collection.

Monroe is painting with a boldness, strength and confidence that is indicative of the journey of growth she has been on as an artist over the last two year. As well as gaining a following locally in Portland, with people recognizing her work and making a point of attending her openings, Monroe’s work is now in private collections in Canada, the UK, France, Greece, Mexico, Israel and Qatar. In addition to being represented by The Road Gallery, she also has work in a gallery in Brittany, France.

Below are the five paintings we have just added to the gallery, which are now available to purchase. Contact us for further information about any of these pieces or to add them to your collection. See our full collection of Monroe’s work on her artist’s page in the gallery.
