Linda Mitchell: Truth in Animals
October 6 – December 31, 2017

The Everhart invites viewer’s to enter a dream-like world of animals and mystery, created by artist Linda Mitchell, in the exhibit Truth In Animals. Ethereal in its oddness, Mitchell’s highly textured, brilliantly colored two-dimensional work is made with painted and photographic images, fabric, wood, glass and found objects. These works coalesce into intricate and surreal scenes, reflecting life’s emotional complexity, while her three-dimensional animal figures, made of fabric and Play-Doh, add a delightful whimsy to the viewer’s journey.

Throughout her work, Mitchell uses animal figures as surrogates for human beings and their emotional lives. Some of these figures speak directly to the child within and the vulnerable, delicate places hidden in everyone’s past. Others, particularly African animals, serve as emissaries from the ever-vanishing natural world.
