Creating connections through the arts and across cultures

Dean Mitchell Exhibit at Portfolio Gallery & Education Center, St. Louis

The opening of Dea Mitchell's exhibit was a magnificent gala showing off his work to good effect. We met old friends and made new ones. My lime green hat is magical at bringing new connections into my life.

Scamper on down to Portfolio Gallery & Education Center to see their newest exhibit of Dean Mitchell's magnificent work. With precision and affection his water colors demonstrate that everything's a portrait (as the Riverfront Times says). Go here to see samples of his paintings and prints. Dean is a premier water color artist of our times and one of the highest paid African-American artists in the world today. Coming from poverty and raised by his grandmother, Dean has risen to the heights of the art world.

Joan Holman, the Internet marketing wizard says:

Dean Mitchell's art has been compared to Norman Rockwell and Andrew Wyeth, but Dean has his own unique style. Much of his art is representative of African-Americans, whose images are under-represented if not totally absent, from the museums in America.
