Local artist to open solo art exhibit with paintings created to music
Local artist Jennifer Jones-Mitchell will open a solo abstract art exhibit “exploring the impact of sound and senses in an always-on, ultra-plugged-in life.”
The exhibit, titled “Visions of Sound and Senses,” will open with a “meet the artist” event from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. on Sept. 22, and the exhibit will run from then until Sept. 30. It will be held at the Sycamore Place Gallery, 120 Sycamore Place, Decatur, Ga 30030.
A self-taught artist, Jones-Mitchell began painting as a sort of escape from her high-intensity career in public relations. Each piece represents a moment where she allowed herself to be “taken away by music and uninhibited sensory perceptions,” she said.
Jones-Mitchell often paints to music and said that one of the paintings was created to the song “Lake Avondale,” a piece composed by her own husband, David Mitchell, in April 2015. That musical composition was inspired by a walk around the lake in Avondale Estates.
At the exhibit, Jones-Mitchell will hand out earbuds and ask attendees to download a playlist from iTunes so that they can hear the same music she did while painting each piece.
