An artists’ talk with both creators will be on Wednesday, Jan. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Mitchell, an art teacher at Fraser Woods Montessori School in Newtown, is inspired by cave painting and explores natural phenomena, creating animals “who intertwine allegory and story with the everyday themes of a middle aged single mom - love, death, divorce and empty nest,” she said.
Caserotti’s work emphasizes narrative. “ I am interested in telling stories through images,” he said. “After all, stories are how mankind has attempted to explain and come to terms with those most mundane yet incomprehensible events in life, such as birth and death and many of the unforeseen events in between.”
This work is his “Romeo and Juliet.”
Gallery hours ar Wednesday and Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 1 to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 4 p.m.
