Dan Melville’s featured show is illuminating in multiple ways. His metal sculptural lamps will, of course, illuminate even the darkest corner of a room, but his approach to creating his lamps is also illuminating in an artistic sense. It is nothing short of amazing what the man can do with odd bits and pieces, converting a pile of scrap and junk into something quite arresting.
