Jeffry Mitchell Acquired by Honolulu Museum of Art (HI)

The gallery is thrilled to announce the Honolulu Museum of Art‘s acquisition of Jeffry Mitchell‘s  works, “In the Garden”(2014), for it’s permanent collection.

Founded in 1927, the Honolulu Museum of Art is Hawai‘i’s largest private presenter of visual arts programs, with an internationally recognized collection of more than 50,000 works spanning 5,000 years. In addition to the visual arts, film and concert programs, lectures, art classes and workshops make the museum the state’s cultural hub.

Jeffry Mitchell was born in Seattle in 1958. He received his MFA in printmaking at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia. For more than twenty-five years Mitchell has produced idiosyncratic sculptures, drawings, and prints. His oeuvre seamlessly combines high and low references that span religion, sex, nature, fine art, and folk and decorative arts traditions. Mitchell has been nominated for numerous national awards and was a recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant in 2009. Mitchell’s work can be found in numerous private and public collections including the Seattle Art Museum, Philadelphia Art Museum, Fogg Art Museum (Harvard University), and the Portland Art Museum.
