The Sohns Gallery in Bangor is having an Opening Reception for “Aaron Mitchell: Portrait Artist” Friday Oct. 14th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm with live music provided by The Milk Man’s Union. The show runs through November 11th.
A figurative oil painter, Mitchell presents a collection of unique portraits. The identity of each subject is anonymous. The focus is as much on what obscures the nature of the portrayed as it does on what defines them. All are hiding something, using objects and dress to embellish their character while concealing their true persona. Aaron Mitchell was born in Bangor, ME in 1989 and attended high school in Belfast. In May 2011 he graduated from the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. FMI, visit www.sohnsgallery.com/ or www.mindofmitchell.com
