About Mitchell Gallery

Set in the center of the St. John’s College campus, the Elizabeth Myers Mitchell Gallery is a hidden treasure in historic Annapolis, Maryland. The Gallery, which enjoys more than 10,000 visitors each year, hosts a diverse array of exhibitions and programs annually. Past shows have featured Shakespeare’s First Folio, celebrated artists such as Bruegel, Rembrandt, Matisse, Miro, Rodin, and Warhol, and centuries-old illuminated manuscripts, while others have highlighted the unique historical and artistic offerings of the Annapolis area. Each spring, the Mitchell Gallery presents an exhibition of work by community and regional artists, and it is home to yearlong programming, including receptions, lectures and discussions with curators and collectors, hands-on creative workshops, and more. All exhibitions and most programs are free and open to the public.

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.

In spring 2019, the Mitchell Gallery was selected for the Baltimore Sun’s Critic’s Pick for “Best Exhibition Series.”
