Mel Kadel, who amazes us with the art she can create with just pens, is opening up a show on Sept 10th (7-10pm) at the Fecal Face Gallery. “Echo Test” will be her first solo show in the Bay Area which will feature her signature colorful and patterned “quilted” backgrounds along with her characters struggling, pushing, straining across her landscapes and against each other.

There will also be 100 signed and numbered copies of “Stop That Dreaming,” by Los Angeles band ((Sounder)) with original cover-art by Kadel available at the opening reception. Kadel, along with artists Travis Millard and Michael Sieben can also be heard singing on the track “Oh Darkness Looming.”
