‘Note to Self’ handwriting in astroturf by Christy Mitchell

‘Note to Self’ is a response to the call from a series of solo exhibitions by the artist, Christy Mitchell, that have taken place each year during the month of November at The Space Gallery in Burlington, Vermont, of which she also serves as the Director.

Mitchell’s site specific installations often integrate the memory of a past generation through the use of era based artifacts. She uses these symbols to communicate a way of living in relation to how she is feeling in the current moment.

‘Capable’ mixed media by Christy Mitchell

‘Note to Self’ feels as if you’ve walked into the artists home and noticed their notes on scrap paper or messages written in the condensation on shower doors that were never intended to be read by anyone but the author herself, though in fact the outside discovery was completely intentional.

‘fake it ’till you make it’ etched handwriting in glass, shadow on wall by Christy Mitchell

Immerse yourself while walking along the astroturf covered floors through a dreamlike installation…into the artists’ musings on what is real, what have we been faking along the way, and how do we really feel about it all now?

Visit ‘Note to Self’ at The Space Gallery any Thursday -Saturday from 12-5pm through December 1st, 2018.
