Waterlines: Solo Show by Shelley Mitchell
Argyle Fine Art // 7pm - 9pm

Shelley Mitchell is one of our most treasured artists here at Argyle Fine Art, and gearing ourselves up for her upcoming solo show feels like preparing for our favorite holiday feast. "Waterlines" is a series of 17 original oil paintings with a focus on objects in water, specifically tenders and a few other small boats. These paintings are absolutely beautifully rendered, and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. We hope you’ll join us for the opening reception here at Argyle Fine Art.
