Mitchell currently has three pieces on display in the MWM’s exhibition, “Finding Place on Paper: Contemporary Poets and Printmakers Explore the White Mountains.” Born in Holyoke, MA., and raised in Catskill, N.Y., Mitchell moved to NH in 1983 and began creating brightly colored serigraph silkscreens of the NH landscape. During this presentation, hear about Mitchell’s youth and learn how the Hudson River School influenced his White Mountain imagery. Visitors will also see a printmaking demonstration by the artist.

A starred review published this year in Library Journal praised the book, saying , "The compelling story of a much-maligned critter . . . Readers, perhaps even ophidiophobic ones, will come away with a fresh appreciation for a creature with 'the toxic bite and admonishing tail.'"
