Through June 9, 2018, the Ethnic Art Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri, will be host to a new exhibition of Dean Mitchell’s watercolor paintings. In haunting rural and urban scenes, the artist tackles themes of isolation and poverty in the modern world. The paintings feature places common to the working class — the backbone of our nation, whose voices and spaces are rarely looked upon as places of beauty or subsequence. The exhibition aims to expose the romantic myth of the American Dream, fragmented in despair, by shining a light on the daily lives of those seeking a better tomorrow.
