"Art is an attempt by the artist to elicit an emotional response from the observer."

Abstract artists reach out to connect with the viewer's raw emotions.  Their choice of composition, color, value and method are the artist's tools. ​ Impressionists strive to create a vision using light and color to enable the viewer to see and understand what, to the artist, are the essential elements of the image. ​ In the world of "Fantasy" the artist reaches inward to express unworldly images as if they are real. ​ We invite you to leave your preconceptions at the door of Mistlin Gallery during January.  Sit in one of our comfortable chairs and take time to let your emotions whirl with the possibilities presented by the artists' images.
