Saturday, July 3, 2021: Bill Mitchell – Printmaker
Bill’s work is among the many fine crafts available for purchase at the Gallery. Come see him work and learn more about his craft and artistry
Born in Holyoke, MA., and raised in Catskill, N.Y., Printmaker William Mitchell moved to NH in 1983 and began creating silkscreens of the NH landscape. When Mitchell depicts a NH mountain, forest or river, the resulting image is both familiar and brand new. Mitchell’s brightly colored prints portray places of special beauty and meaning to him. “The scenic beauty of New Hampshire amazes me. How the rolling of a blue sky touches our rolling mountains to create a vibrant world. The intimate forest scenes, rushing streams and color everywhere are what inspire me. I hope that people take an appreciation and an interest in the preservation of our natural world from my art. I hope people are also able to explore their feelings about nature through my work.” Mitchell, a high school art teacher, lives in Dover, NH with his wife Mary.
