Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children

July 25, 2019

This year is extra special for the TSRSC Summer Colors art event. They have asked me to be part of their Host Committee again and I am thrilled to be giving back to an organization that gave to me as a patient when I was a child. Please join me this year to help Summer Colors become an even bigger success!

Summer Colors - An Art Auction, now in its ninth year, was an idea born out of passion for both art and the patients of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC). Founded in 2009, this art auction raises awareness about the hospital, while also exposing the Dallas community to up and coming local artists. To date, Summer Colors - An Art Auction has raised more than $106,000 for the hospital.

Each year, local artists donate original pieces of art to be featured in the auction, with all the proceeds benefiting Scottish Rite Hospital. Summer Colors provides a unique opportunity for artists to gain local exposure, all the while making a difference in the lives of the patients.

Voyage Dallas Interview Publication

May 09, 2018

The paint splatters flew overhead as they whipped across the canvas. The masterpiece was complete. With a dripping wet paintbrush in hand and paint splattered on my tiny feet, at 7 years old, I knew this was my destiny.

My days were spent doodling on the margins of pages of notebooks as my teachers lectured and as I daydreamed. I filled pages with endearing characters, whimsical font and new ideas. I learned better by sight, color and tangibility. Entering art contests at a young age, privately tutored by fine artists and skillfully creating year after year, I was preparing for my future.

As a professional artist, I create commissioned artworks for private clients, exhibit in fine art galleries and art shows, and participate in fine art contests and festivals. I also serve as a juror for local school district art contests, have organized art events for cities, the Museum of Biblical Arts, and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children to enhance the arts in the community. Through personal fine art donations and corporate fundraising, I have helped raise over $8,000 for charities. It is my desire that my works will inspire and bring joy all who view them.

Thrift Studio - Benefiting Dwell with Dignity

April 05, 2017

Dwell with Dignity’s Thrift Studio event is a fundraiser like no other!  Thrift Studio is a 30-day pop-up shop created to provide financial viability and fundraising for Dwell with Dignity by selling donated furniture, housewares, accessories and high-end designer finds to the public. Since the concept launched in Dallas in 2011, the event has grown into a highly anticipated and can’t-miss event for DwD supporters, the interior design community and the general public looking for a fabulous deal on home furnishings.

Thrift Studio kicks off with a Preview Party which is a ticketed event where guests can shop the pop-up shop before it opens to the general public. Inside, Thrift Studio shoppers find stunning vignettes created by leading designers, showrooms and retailers featuring donated high-end home decor items sold at significant discounts with 100% of sales benefitting Dwell with Dignity’s mission.

 

Thrift Studio provides one-third of the operating revenue that allows Dwell with Dignity to change lives through design by bringing good design to those who can afford it the least. In 2016 Dwell with Dignity will complete 22 projects providing fresh starts for 20 families and 2 community partners. Our approach of one household at a time allows us to be integral to breaking the cycle of poverty. We provide the stability, comfort and pride needed to change the course of the lives of the families we help.  We cannot do that without the support of our largest fundraiser, Thrift Studio.

SPACES Downtown Dallas

With the opening of SPACES in Uptown Dallas, they threw one amazing grand opening party. They invited artists of all sorts to fill up the spaces in their facility.

Centered in Uptown’s thriving professional and social community, this historic building’s unique architecture contrasts with its contemporary interior design, and fuels forward-thinking ideation.

Known for its professional opportunity just as much as its entertainment, Uptown’s live-work-play community is home to the nation’s leading companies as well as inspiring start-ups.

Gateway Publication

September 01, 2016

In the latest publication of Gateway Magazine, I was selected to feature an artwork for their inside cover of the September edition! They chose the piece, "Freedom Abounds," which was an original art work done for a cover of a book. Click here to view Gateway Magazine September Issue.

Painting Giclèe Prints available for purchase. Painting Order Form.

Below is the story that goes with the painting.

Cover Art of Galatians Book

“Freedom Abounds”

Original Oil on Canvas

 

What a true delight it has been to render Galatians as an oil painting. Along the way we chose to portray a work that is abstract in nature. It leaves room for you to contemplate what you see, feel and gain from the piece. The most beautiful part is that each person will see something different.

 

I hope to evoke emotions of peace with this artwork, the peace that we have in Christ, knowing that we have freedom in him and through him. May the colors portrayed burst with life and dance across the canvas with joy. I pray it is a statement piece about coming out of darkness into new light.

 

If you look closely, you will see little white impressions of birds being set free, soaring across the sky of color. They are released into infinite opportunities, lifting upward to boundless joy. I see them living a life of uninhibited freedom.

 

As his words unfold in this study, I pray his glorious love fills our minds and hearts with light. May the door to our cage open so we can lift our wings to a place where freedom abounds. 

- Christina Mitchella
