Joan Mitchell: Visual Poetry
An exhibition of works by legendary Modernist Master
Joan Mitchell is on view at Andrea S. Keogh Art & Design,
an art gallery on Litchfield’s historic town green.
We have a superstar in our midst. The current exhibition at Andrea S. Keogh Art & Design in Litchfield features a portfolio of eight lithographs by the modern master, Joan Mitchell (1925-1992). Mitchell was one of the few female Abstract Expressionists in the male-dominated West Village, New York City art world of the 1950s. But she definitely held her own, sparring with tough verbal retorts to Pollock, Kline and the rest of the art guys at the Cedar Bar. A restless soul with a cantankerous personality, Mitchell was at ease only when she was painting, when for her, time stopped, silence prevailed, and she lost herself in the creative process.
