Mitchell Hill Gallery | Coastal Constructs

Head to Mitchell Hill to see the latest works from Jamie Blackburn, Coastal Constructs. The series of conceptual abstract paintings draws upon Blackburn’s recent travels to coastal areas affected by extreme weather. In a press release Blackburn says, “I witnessed an eerie and rustic beauty in the resourcefulness used to preserve and reconstruct homes and businesses.” This reconstruction that Blackburn witnessed inspired him to rework existing paintings, while still allowing remnants of the past to peek through.

Fri. March 1, 5-9 p.m. Free to attend. Mitchell Hill Gallery, 438 King St. Downtown. mitchellhillinc.com


Miller Gallery | Tell Me Something

Every artist has their own voice and form of expression, but sometimes colors alone don’t say it loud enough. Tell Me Something will feature painter Charlotte Filbert, collagist Miles Purvis, and ceramicist Liv Antonecchia with artwork that includes written messages. All naturally inclined to use written text in their work, these three artists harness the power of language to incite humor, communicate emotion, or make a call to action.

Fri. March 1, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Miller Gallery, 149 1/2 East Bay St. Downtown. millergallerychs.com


Robert Lange Studios | Drift

Contemporary landscape artist KC Collins brings his meditative body of paintings, Drift, to Robert Lange Studios this March. For this series, Collins experimented with new canvas shapes to explore familiar subjects. In a press release Collins says, “To drift, or be carried away both talks about my process and also my subjects. As a part of my continuing exploration into sea and cloudscapes, these paintings are from moments in nature that cause us to pause and appreciate the uniqueness in a scene that is seemingly commonplace.”

Fri. March 1, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Robert Lange Studios, 2 Queen St. Downtown. robertlangestudios.com


Neema Gallery | Nurtured, Bonded & Spiritual

Self-taught artist April Harrison, Neema Gallery’s featured artist for the month of March, considers herself “merely a vessel being utilized to instinctively create narrative, sentiment, and observation.” Her work is inspired by fond memories and inner spirituality. Head back to the gallery on Sun. March 3 from 3-5 p.m. for a book signing with Harrison for the kids’ book she illustrated, What is Given From The Heart.

Fri. March 1, 6-9 p.m. Free to attend. Neema Gallery, 3 Broad St. Suite 100. Downtown. neemagallery.com
