New York painter and printmaker Emily Mason creates singularly rich abstract images. Sculptor Torin Porter of Glover, VT engages our imagination with his playful, stylized steel figures. Painter and collage artist Anne Johnstone from Somerville, MA works in collage and mixed media to convey a curiously heightened emotional response. Sculptor Eric Boyer of Portland, Oregon manipulates wire mesh to create exquisite human and abstract forms. Jon Gregg is a painter well-known as the founder and former president of the Vermont Studio Center. Compositions by local collage artist Tiffany Heerema explore worlds that engage the playful spirit. Paintings by Robin Cheung of Acton, MA draw focus to the beauty and elegance of archeological forms.
Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works of the highest caliber that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer. MGFA opened in 2014 with seven artists, and enters this new year with thirty established artists working in a variety of traditional and unusual materials.
