Exhibitions

Bringing great art of world renown to the St. John’s and Annapolis community is central to the Mitchell Gallery’s mission. Every year, the Mitchell Gallery presents four traveling exhibitions, which have included works of celebrated artists such as Bruegel, Calder, Rembrandt, Matisse, Miro, Rodin, Warhol, Motherwell, and Johns. Recent exhibitions have included watercolors from the Thaw Collection at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum; drawings from the Dahesh Museum of Art; and exhibitions of unique historical and regional interest, such as photography by A. Aubrey Bodine and Marion Warren, Shakespeare’s First Folio, and works from the National Craft show. The Mitchell Gallery also presents one to two exhibitions annually that showcase work by community and regional artists.

Community

The Mitchell Gallery serves the community of St. John’s College and the broader Annapolis community as a resource for all ages to experience museum-quality art by viewing, discussing, and engaging in activities about the world of fine art. The Gallery’s modern design is attributable to architect Chip Bohl who was recognized with a citation of merit from the American Institute of Architects in 1989.
