Today is the last day to see Serena Mitnik-Miller’s solo exhibition, W I L D. This is her third solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring new watercolor works on paper. @maraserene begins each watercolor with a certain amount of vision and idea, however, over the course of applying her paints, the piece takes on its own direction. The end effect is work that is organic in its creation, while remaining confined. The artist explains that her work evokes a balance between chaos and control, a tension between the organic nature of the watercolors against the confined geometric walls. The gallery is open until 6pm today. Serena Mitnik-Miller Untitled, 2017 Watercolor on paper 30 1/4 x 22 1
