Carolina Gallery in Spartanburg, SC, Offers Works by Suzanne "Sam" Mitchell
Carolina Gallery on Morgan Square in downtown in Spartanburg, SC, will present an exhibition of new work by Suzanne "Sam" Mitchell, on view from May 20 through June 30, 2010.
Mitchell's paintings are from her latest series, "The Urban Unstill Life," in which she ventures into a cosmopolitan view in both color theory and topic. Translating big city lights and the urban environment into abstract, painterly motion, Mitchell states, "My large scale works became very much of a physical endeavor, almost a mixture of contact sport with jazz music flowing throughout. This is a very textured and layered body of work." Her exhibit will also include a series of 8" x 10" vignettes which she describes as greatly abstracted, reflective pieces based on her major works in the series.
Born and raised in Oregon, Mitchell received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Loyola University. She received her certification in Art Education from Converse College, and in 2000-2002 she apprenticed in Painting Restoration at the New Orleans Conservation Guild. After teaching art in Spartanburg County's district 7 for 6 years, she joined the Spartanburg Day School faculty in 2007 as the Lower School Art Instructor. In 2006 she was honored with "Best in Show" in the Artist's Guild of Spartanburg Annual Juried Exhibition.
