Movements, a solo exhibit by Martinican artists Bela, will be on display from January 21 to February 3 at the Marcel Wah Gallery in Rockville, Maryland. The gallery, which is well known for supporting Caribbean artists, is offering an opening reception on January 21, from 6 to 9pm. For more information go to http://wahfinearts.com/ or at Caribbean Art World Magazine at http://cawmagazine.com/.
Béatrice Lampla Mellinger, aka Bela, her artist signature, was born in Martinique. Her paintings incorporate multicultural references from her Asian, African, and European ancestors, and from her birthplace, with its own multiethnic heritage. Bela has travelled extensively, lived in many countries across several continents and believes that her paintings convey her rich experience. “Painting is a universal language that enhances the awareness, as well as the understanding, of other cultures”, says Béatrice Lampla Mellinger.
Bela currently resides in Washington DC where she continues to create her vibrant work.
The proceeds of her sales from the ehibit will be donates to earthquake victims in Haiti.
