Melinda McCarthy, showing in the next installment of Broadway Gallery’s Home and Abroad series New York.

Shrouded deep in the mystical realms of folk lore, mythology and legend, the artworks of Melinda McCarthy reach deep into the shadowy depths of her deep coloured canvas and bring forth images of ancient and sometimes long forgetten stories and ideas into the light.The allure of the symbology and mysticism hidden in ancient tales and concepts has always been strong for Melinda, and has served her as a sort of treasure map to imagery and inspiration. Fuelled even further by her own mysterious past as an adoptee searching for her biological heritage, Melinda’s work is rich with the soul of one inspired through many travels and journeys inward and outward.The magic and illumination which this brings to her work, it seems has ignited the imagination of audiences world wide with shows in the UK, Europe, Australia, and New York is no exception. An exhibiting artist for over ten years, Melinda’s work really started to gain recognition in London through her involvement in the Catch in the Eye series of exhibitions run by artist Magdalena Rutkowska and in the art Minerva auctions in Venice and London, where her work was donated to help raise money for L’Aquila after the earthquakes.  Following this she was invited to exhibit in the Biennale of Chianciano, Tuscany organised by Gagliardi Galleries in London.Her first New York show inspired the words of poet, S David and had the town talking.Now this December Melinda has been invited back to New York to be part of the Home and Abroad series of exhibitions run by Broadway Gallery.  The gallery, (owned by Abraham Lubelski, publisher of NY Arts Magazine) uses the Home and Abroad series of exhibitions as a way of bringing together showcases of emerging and established artists, exhibiting them side by side and creating a new and exciting dialogue within the art world.  Yet another way of keeping their finger on the pulse so to speak.This particular installment will be running for the whole of December.  Along side the work of Melinda McCarthy, will be an amazing spectrum of world wide talent, including pieces from, Serioshka Hellmund, MOON HYE JA, Kristina Garon, Ana Negro, Hanna Scheriau, Kristin Bruner, Sarah T. Powers, Nana Bagdavadze, Grady Zeeman, Claire Fearon, Nabeela Al Khayer, John Gesager Nielsen, Rotem Reshef, Ulla-Britt Bolin, Laura Fung, Ingvill Solberg, Aase-Hilde Brekke, Margareth Adama, Charles Swenson, Delma Godoy, Ilona van Hoek, Cherri Bender, Sidyk Gayoso, Luminita Gliga, Cristina Rodriguez, Juan Lopez and Kerry Grøneng
