Selections from Jack Mitchell: Icons & Idols

August 1 - November 1
Atlantic Center for the Arts at Harris House, 214 S Riverside Dr.
New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168 United States

Opening Reception, August 1, 4 PM - 7 PM | Jack Mitchell, American photographer and author, was best known for his photographs of American artists, dancers, film and theatre performers, musicians and writers. This exhibition features photographs from the book Icons & Idols: A Photographer’s Chronicle of the Arts, 1960-1995 that are now part of the permanent collection of the Atlantic Center for the Arts. These masterfully printed selenium-toned, gelatin silver prints were completed during a 35 year period in New York City and represent highlights of Mitchell’s portrait work. From actress Julie Andrews to operatic soprano and concert singer Barbara Hendricks, this display is a celebration of women who have simultaneously balanced high profile careers with the intricacies of motherhood. Gallery viewing by appointment. To schedule, email community@atlanticcenterforthearts.org or call (386) 423-1753.
