WHAT’S HAPPENING

When your art is so prolific that the canvas can’t hold it all, you have to find other ways to share its beauty.

That why Melissa A. Mitchell– whose paintings are currently on display in the Mayor’s Gallery at Atlanta City Hall – has taken her work to another level. She’s adapted her creations to wearable fabric, which has opened up a whole new clientele for the ambitious young painter/designer.

With explosive color, abstract imagery and ancestral themes, Mitchell’s art is a powerful presence no matter where or how it’s exhibited.
