Mines’ Mitchell Shares New Exhibit at the Dahl Arts Center

"Sporades Islands" by Deborah Mitchell

RAPID CITY, S.D. (May 13, 2016) – Deborah Mitchell, Mines associate professor and director of the Apex Gallery, debuted her exhibit “Refuge” today at the Inez & Milton Shaver Gallery at the Dahl Arts Center. There will be an artist’s reception from 5-7 p.m. this evening with an artist talk at 6 p.m. The exhibit will run through Aug. 27.

Mitchell shares her experiences traveling and exploring through drawings and monotype prints. She works primarily as a printmaker who also sketches and draws on location. Refuge is made up of two parallel bodies of work. The first is Mitchell’s abstracted monotypes which reflect her experiences while traveling abroad (especially in Turkey). The other body of work is a series of large-scale drawings inspired by Mitchell’s hikes in the Black Hills region.
