Join Jim Giddings and Petria Mitchell, founding Artists of Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts for this artist talk amid their current exhibition "Oils and Watercolors", running through September 17. In “Oils and Watercolors”, Petria Mitchell will be showing a selection of new oil paintings that continue her investigations in color and atmosphere. Her exploration of the ethereal world of light and ambience through the use of tonal gradation and converging lines are signature elements in her work. “Using nature as an initial reference point allows me to play with limitless visual possibilities while embracing a thorough appreciation for abstraction.” Jim Giddings has begun to paint in his rebuilt studio, and his work in “Oils and Watercolors” will include new watercolors as well as salvaged, reworked or revisited oil paintings. For Giddings, an exploration of the richness of painted surfaces is an important aspect of his work, and he "continue[s] to believe that beauty lies in small things."
