Melt Studio and Gallery
Melt Studio and Gallery is managed and run by Canadian encaustic artist Susan Wallis and is the home to her encaustic working studio. Susan is thrilled to be in this wonderful space and looks forward to showcasing her work in the gallery space along with a selection of other talented artists and artisans.
Our gallery mandate is to foster and enhance public awareness, understanding, and appreciation for the positive cultural significance of the visual arts by showcasing all levels of visual artists and artisans through the exhibition. We aim to cultivate a supportive environment for the arts, by providing inexpensive gallery space and the opportunity to showcase works in a covid safe environment. Our Project Gallery rental agreements come with various options so that we can tailor fees to the artist’s means to make accessibility our priority. Our gallery space is open and welcome to all artists and peoples regardless of their age, gender, orientation, backgrounds, etc. We have a zero-tolerance discrimination policy within our gallery to make this environment safe for all, attendees and artists alike.
Melt has a working encaustic studio, one large open concept gallery space, 3 smaller small project rooms, and one showroom.
