Multimedia works by Quincy artist Kirsten Nadine Mitchell will be on display during February in the Brenner Library’s Gray Gallery at Quincy University. The exhibition will be open to the public without charge Feb. 7 – 26 during operating hours of the library thanks to sponsorship by the QU division of fine arts and communication.
Mitchell holds a bachelor's in painting and drawing from Judson College (Elgin, Ill.) and a master's in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah, Ga.), where she was the recipient of a Board of Trustees Fellowship.

Oakley Area Artists Showcase as well as the Award of Excellence (2009) and the Artistic Merit Award (2005) in Quincy’s Midsummer Arts Faire.
