Students from all disciplines at Mississippi School of the Arts recently received an opportunity to chat with renowned watercolor artist Dean Mitchell in an open forum. Mitchell, a visual artist from Quincy, Florida, visited Brookhaven for the first time to be a part of the unveiling of an art piece acquisitioned by the Lincoln-Lawrence-Franklin Regional Library.
The body of working that will be on display at Ethnic Arts in Kansas
City is a mix of both urban and rural settings. The rural scenes deal
with isolation and poverty in the modern world. The paintings are of
people, places and spaces of the working class. They are the backbone
of our nation who’s voices and spaces are often rarely looked upon as
places of beauty and power. The romantic myth of the America Dream,
fragmented in despair, has become even more visible through the daily
lives of those seeking a better tomorrow.
Watercolor artist Dean Mitchell is well known for his figurative works, landscapes and still lifes. In addition to watercolors, he is accomplished in other mediums, including egg temperas, oils and pastels. His works is an intelligent blend of craftsmanship with a rare understanding of visual magic that transcends what seems apparent to an understanding of what is real.
