Open to the public Mon-Fri 1-6pm, Sat & Sun 1-5pm.
Husband and wife artists Maceo W. Mitchell and Patricia J. Wynne have taught at universities both home and abroad and their work continues to be exhibited internationally.
Maceo is primarily a pastel still life artist whose work explores the relationship of values and tints of color around pivotal images which are often fruits or vegetables. A superb draftsman, his pastel technique is surprisingly quick and loose while conveying a realistic impression. Although he often works large and with numerous multiple units, this show exhibits small intimate works. Maceo's art have been shown in the U.S., France, Belgium, Germany and Canada, and his gallery representation has included the Farr Gallery, Allan Stone, Bill Hodges and Mehu galleries, all in New York City.
Patricia J. Wynne considers herself a small works artist. As a printmaker, pen-pencil-watercolor and construction artist, she focuses on nature, especially animals that she knows well from her work as a science artist for various zoos, science publications and museums. After illustrating over 170 books, Patricia is returning to printmaking at her own small shop, at the Salmagundi monoprint parties and Blackburns Printmaking Workshop. She has exhibited often around the U.S. and Canada. Her most recent show was a three-person print show at Mehu Gallery in New York City in spring 2012.
