Primordial Novae, series by Melissa Lee

Tenth Muse is the project of Melissa Lee, a local artist and alum of the University of Georgia where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in painting. She continued her studies at Florida State University, receiving a Master of Arts before recently returning to Athens. The artwork displayed in the brewery represents the first phase of Primordial Novae, a series inspired by ancient Greek creation myths. Melissa’s art explores the nature of vulnerability and self-content by creating an allegory of the inner self as celestial phenomena. Fascination with astronomy and existentialism drive this focus, as Melissa draws parallels between the primordial void of energy in outer space and the individual creative energy within our selves.

 “One must have chaos in one’s self to give birth to a dancing star.”

- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

All works of art displayed in the brewery are original acrylic paintings on canvas and are for sale. High resolution giclée prints of these paintings and more are also available for purchase via the artist’s website. Contact the artist at with specific purchase inquiries. Visit the artist’s website at to view more artwork. Special offer for CCBC guests: free shipping on print orders using the code CURIOUS.
