Lamson Learning Commons at PSU presents Works by Plymouth Artist Annette Mitchell (251 w/2 col Huckin's Tractor Barn)
Published DatePLYMOUTH — The Lamson Library and Learning Commons at Plymouth State University will present a series of paintings by Professor of Art Annette Mitchell June 10–September 27 at the Highland Street facility. The exhibition will be located on the main level of Lamson.
"Nightscapes" is a series of 12 paintings of sites in and around the Plymouth area painted in 2012. Mitchell used acrylic paint on archival paper to interpret local landmarks like Beyond the Bean Bakery in Plymouth, Main Street in Bethlehem, the old high school in Ashland, The Flying Monkey Movie House and Performance Center and Huckin's tractor barn in Holderness to demonstrate her love of sharp contrasts, a color palette in low natural light and her appreciation for living in New Hampshire.
Mitchell is perhaps best known for her printmaking process using foam block prints, but she enjoys working in a variety of media and genres including quilting, painting and drawing.
She has been New Hampshire Art Educator of the Year, and has artwork in the permanent collection of Southern New Hampshire University. Mitchell was selected by artscope magazine as one of 13 artists to profile in their March/April issue. She has been awarded Best of Show recognition in exhibitions in Alabama and New Hampshire and has exhibited widely. Her work may be sampled online at Foamiswheretheartis.com.
