The beauty of landscape has always been a source of inspiration in Deborah Mitchell's art, whether in the Black Hills or as she moves through ancient cultures. For her exhibition at The Garage, now on display, she is showing drawings from the Black Hills and monotypes from two different series. "Refuge" was inspired by her trips through Turkey, Greece, and Italy. She is also unveiling her new series, "Garden’s I’ve Known."

Deborah looks for inspiration in the “lived” environment. The evidence of the marks we make on the land, worn steps, tilled fields, and peeling paint speak to her. Her eye searches for the effects of light and time in both the built environment and the natural world. As a result, Deborah's art spans realistically depicting the landscape to abstract monotypes of patterns and vibrant color. 

Stop in to see it during regular business hours, or join us for a special artist reception in honor of Deborah on Friday, January 5 from 5-7pm. There will be wine, friendship, and art.
