Calypte Gallery are pleased to present artists Alfred Harris and Jeffry Mitchell in Milk, Milk, Lemonade, A collection of collaborative masterpieces on paper and ceramics, this Thursday, June 9. The show has a juvenile and fun feel, but with a substantial message that aims to make the audience go back in time. Alfred and Jeffry have been close friends since the late ’80s and have been drawing and collaborating together ever since.

Calypte is a small gallery showing all disciplines of art. People come here with an open attitude of what they may see. Calypte is open the second Thursday of the month in conjunction with Capitol Hill Art Walk. It’s located in an apartment building, so don’t be shy about entering and just follow the signs.

A Seattle native, Mitchell attended Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, where he received an MFA in printmaking. His sculptures, drawings, and prints have seamlessly combined the high and low references that span religion, sex, nature, fine art, folk and decorative arts traditions. Mitchell has national recognition, having been nominated for numerous national awards, and was the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant in 2009. His work can be seen in numerous private and public collections, including the Seattle Art Museum, Philadelphia Art Museum, Fogg Art Museum (Harvard University), the Portland Art Museum and now the Calypte Gallery.

Harris has exhibited in over 60 shows and has pieces in the numerous collections, including Dain Bosworth, Nordstrom, Inc., Phillip Morris Management Corporation, Seattle Art Museum, and the University of Washington Medical Center.
