Welcome SouveNEAR!

My name is Mel Kelly. I'm a contemporary artist from the Kansas City area and I'd love a chance to be featured in your Kansas City display. 
Below are the "artifact originals" from my Get Lost collection of hand-dyed abstract maps. I think they would be a perfect fit for your display and mission.
I don't want to repeat too much from the application, but I thought it might be helpful to see it laid out.
Thanks for checking it out!

The Process

Abstract Cartography

These maps are fictional. They tell a story. Mel calls this abstract cartography


The 100% cotton, archival quality canvas is hand-dyed using Mel's custom River Painting Dye Method.

Multiple Layers

The dyeing process takes multiple layers, heat, different color mixtures and ink to attain the final result.
