California artist uses legible, illegible approaches with figurative images
GRAMBLING, La. – A Grambling State University digital arts major is hosting an exhibition in the university’s Dunbar Gallery, located on Hutchinson Street on campus through Nov. 22.
DeJanee’ Mitchell grew up in Camarillo, Calif., pursuing a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in digital art. Her style is conceptual, using a lot of text — some legible, some illegible — along with figurative images. “My purpose for creating these pieces is so that no one should have to feel so alone in their emotions,” said the artist. “Too often people feel like they are the only person who feels this way or has been through a certain situation.”
The public is invited to attend a Nov. 21 reception for the artist from 4:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the Dunbar Gallery.
Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. – 12 noon on Friday. Accommodations are available for large groups and people with special needs. This exhibition is sponsored in part by GSU’s “Friends of the Arts.”
