About the event
Using a variety of materials and methods, including ceramics, printmaking, and drawing, Mitchell transforms kitsch subject matter into a study of complex human experiences, including death, sex, religion, and loss.
Mitchell lives and works in Seattle and has been an Artist in Residence at the Archie Bray Foundation, the Vermont Studio Center, the MacDowell Colony, Zentrum für Keramik, a guest lecturer and critic at Harvard University and a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Award, the Neddy Artist Fellowship Award and the Contemporary Northwest Art Award.
