William Mitchell's brightly colored original serigraph prints depict New Hampshire's scenic beauty
Born in Holyoke, MA., and raised in Catskill, N.Y., Printmaker William Mitchell moved to NH in 1983 and began creating silkscreens of the NH landscape.
When Mitchell depicts a NH mountain, forest or river, the resulting image is both familiar and brand new. Mitchell's brightly colored prints portray places of special beauty and meaning to him.
“The scenic beauty of New Hampshire amazes me. How the rolling of a blue sky touches our rolling mountains to create a vibrant world. The intimate forest scenes, rushing streams and color everywhere are what inspire me. I hope that people take an appreciation and an interest in the preservation of our natural world from my art. I hope people are also able to explore their feelings about nature through my work.”
Mitchell, a high school art teacher, lives in Dover, NH with his wife Mary.

The Artist’s Card at Martin-Mullen Art Gallery
A special event happened last weekend as I visited my college art professor James Mullen at the SUNY Oneonta gallery dedicated to him. Mr. Mullen and Gallery director Tim Sheesley have organized the show ‘The Artist’s Card’ on view until December 17. Hundreds of cards by Mullen, his friends and students are on display. I began creating handmade holiday cards 40 years ago after being inspired by Mullen’s work. I am thrilled to have 11 examples of my seasonal cards mailed over the years to James Mullen on display.
