Dean Mitchell, A Living Legacy. Realism & Beyond.

“Mr. Mitchell is a virtual modern-day Vermeer of ordinary black people given dignity through the eloquence of his concentration and touch.” – The New York Times.

This episode of our Evenings with Hulings Salon Series features a video conversation on our running theme of Hulings and twentieth-century realists—why they matter, their antecedents, heirs, and how they fit in the continuum and canon of American art. Featuring acclaimed painter and CHF Board Member Dean Mitchell, and moderated by painter & CHF Development Coordinator Alex McAdams. This fascinating discussion explores where realism and abstraction collide, how Dean first encountered Clark Hulings’ work, the connection between artist and collector, and Mitchell’s haunting and unsentimental choice of subject matter.

“I love exploring the common man. I like things that have a sense of struggle about them, a sense of survival about them.”—Dean Mitchell

We are incredibly thankful to our co-producer Shirley Holland who has made the entire Salon Series possible.
