February 2014 cover artist Mel Kadel has always been one of our favorites. And she is prolific. Her new show, Sky's Eyes, opening October 2, 2015 at Slow Culture, will featuring over 100 new works, and as the gallery notes, "Over the last year Kadel has turned her focus on working on a much smaller scale while building such a large body of work. Her dedication has resulted in new directions and techniques thatare expanding on the carefully detailed drawings she is known for."
