“Storm in Lavendar” by Petria Mitchell
“Storm in Lavendar” by Petria Mitchell
WILMINGTON- Petria Mitchell is currently one of the featured artists exhibiting recent landscapes in oils at the new Ann Coleman gallery. Mitchell studied at the national academy of design in New York and the Vesper George School of Art in Boston.

Mitchell brings both craftsmanship and a refined sense of composition to her paintings. Her confident signature paint handling distinguishes her in the field of contemporary landscape painters. Mitchell’s art becomes metaphor as well as craft; a metaphor perhaps of transcending darkness and the terrain of shadowed sadness, to finally travel in light.

Mitchell lives in West Brattleboro with her husband Jim Giddings, who is also an exhibitor at the Ann Coleman gallery, along with her African gray talking parrot and two hunting dogs. They work their land with a very large vegetable garden and also play a very active rele at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center.

The Ann Coleman Gallery is a collective artists space located at 7 North Main Street. Open every day in March, 10 am to 5 pm, Fridays and Saturdays open until 6 pm, Sundays start at 11 am, closed Wednesdays. Call (802) 379-4305 or visit www.artistanncoleman.com for more information.
