Lesley Mitchell will show a new series of acrylic paintings on panel and works on paper, entitled A Maze Ing. Her studio will be open to vistors as part of POST (Philadelphia Open Studio Tours)

The show will be open Saturday, October 3 and Sunday, October 4, from noon to 6 pm. Each day, Mitchell will give a painting demo at 2 pm in the 3rd floor art studio and a walk-through artist's talk at 4 pm in the 2nd floor Gallery

Though mazes and labyrinths have long been part of her visual imagery, this latest series is a specific investigation into the topography and symbolism of the Maze as a primary image. Some of the work incorporates found objects as well as mixed mediums including monotypes, relief prints & collage.

1315 Buttonwood Street (Buttonwood Arts) houses both the Lesley Mitchell studio and Gallery 1315. Mitchell trained at the PA Academy of the Fine Arts and works as a painter, printmaker and book artist, showing locally and nationally. She has recently developed part of Buttonwood Arts building as a gallery space, inviting Philadelphia artists for solo and group shows.
