Ann Mitchell ~ Dolores Mitchell ~ James Osgood
Ann Mitchell’s photographs have been included in a large number of solo and group exhibitions in the United States and Internationally. She has also served as curator and organizer of photo-related events. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and Balcony Press released Austin Val Verde: Impressions of a Montecito Masterpiece, a monograph of the Val Verde project. Ann Mitchell continues to teach and pursue her photographic interests in her new series The Chance Chronicles, a constructed set of landscapes inspired through Buddhist meditations.
Dolores Mitchell has been sketching, photographing and exploring San Francisco for five years and now is able to improvise paintings in her studio. Rather than depict specific scenes, she starts with a motif such as a Chinese dragon and trust her subconscious to draw upon memories of bridges, buildings, graffiti, gables, spires and plunging streets. The final destinations of her painted journeys often takes her by surprise.
James Osgood was born and raised in Southern California. Living for many years in the San Bernardino mountains, the natural forest environment gave him a love for the organic shapes, forms and materials that he brings into his art-making. He’s drawn to the methodically satisfying process of working with hand tools and often leaves the imperfections found in the materials he uses. He received his BA in Art from California State University in San Bernardino and my MFA in Art form Claremont Graduate University. His sculptures have been included in many group exhibitions in the Southern California area.
Exhibition continues through February 16, 2018
Funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.
