Jo Carol Mitchell-Rogers’s Lost Ones exhibition in the Milliken Art Gallery is part of an ongoing series of mixed media pieces from the artist. The series began as a reaction to the sudden death of a close friend and surrogate brother several years ago and has evolved to Mitchell-Rogers constructing narratives rather than commenting on existing ones. Working with vintage family photos as source material, she manipulates the scenarios by combining images, altering the physical and emotional relationships among the figures, and/or by creating alternative contexts in order to suggest open-ended narratives.
Mitchell-Rogers is a Professor of Art and the Associate Dean of the School of the Arts at Anderson University. She earned a BFA in Painting & Drawing from the University of Georgia and the MFA, also in Painting & Drawing, from Clemson University. Like many artists/teachers, Jo Carol is a perpetual student, later earning a PhD (Art Education, Art Theory & Criticism, Educational Philosophy & Psychology) from the University of Georgia.
Lost Ones will run from October 3-31, 2019. Mitchell-Rogers will present a Gallery Talk on October 3rd at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are – Open Monday-Friday 9:00 am-5:00pm, and Sundays 1:00-5:00. Closed Saturdays and during School Breaks.
