Foundry: New Works by Michelle Merlin and Drew Barrett

For the month of March Balefire Goods welcomes local artists Michelle Merlin and Drew Barrett for an exhibit of their new body of work, Foundry.


Michelle Merlin is an illustrator and designer based in Denver, CO. Merlin's work is defined by her graphic and often bold approach to communication. For this body of work, the pieces are crafted with tempera on wood and raw canvas, bringing a naturalistic feel to her modern and graphic patterns. Drew Barrett is also a Denver based designer and this collaboration with Merlin brought more of a handcrafted approach to her more flat and digital aesthetic bringing depth and layering to this collection. 

Join us for drinks, snacks, and a wonderful evening celebrating local art. In addition to our opening, Olde Town Arvada is a great destination for First Friday with openings at Vouna, The Cereal Box, Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters, Gallery 1874, Light Rail Gallery, Arvada Ceramic Arts Guild, and more.
