Artist Mitchell Johnson‘s paintings are currently on display at Cafe Borrone in Menlo Park in an exhibit that will run through April 15. There will be a reception for the artist on Thursday, March 8 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Mitchell emails that proceeds from any March sales will help support Art in Action, the Menlo Park-based non-profit that brings visual arts education to the classroom.
“This is my fourth show at Borrone in 20 years and these shows really make me feel like part of the community,” says Mitchell, who lives in Menlo Park with his chef/author wife Donia Bijan and their son. “Roy [Borrone] has really championed my work, and I am so grateful.
“I couldn’t tell you of a better place to show on the Peninsula. The diverse clientele means you never know who is going to get introduced to your work. I think everyone I know goes to Borrone two or three times a month if not more, which means this is better than showing in a San Francisco gallery where only a handful of people will get to see the work. Borrone’s soft colored walls were painted specifically to exhibit paintings and the lighting is great.”
