Green Goat Gallery hosts father/daughter show

SPENCER — The Green Goat gallery is hosting an opening reception for Family Ties, a new exhibit featuring paintings by father and daughter artists Dennis Mial and Tamiko LaSharma Patterson on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 6-8 p.m. The public is invited.
Family Ties features more than two dozen new works by the two artists, whose dramatically different styles have earned numerous accolades and awards.
Citing the “colors of nature” as his inspiration, Dennis Mial is self taught and has been painting for more than forty years. His vibrantly hued canvasses often depict everyday scenes—an afternoon walk in the park or a family seated on a sofa—as well as religious themes like angels ascending to heaven. All of his characters remain featureless, drawing comparisons of his work to famed South Carolina artist Jonathan Green. A veteran of the United States Navy, he was born in rural North Carolina and raised in Raleigh.
Like her father, Tamiko LaSharma Patterson paints large, vibrant works with a strong sense of pattern and graphic design, many of which reflect powerful female images. Her painting Soultra, which took top honors at the recent annual Carolina Artists Expo. In addition to her two-dimensional work, she creates decorative pillows and hand- bags, which will also be on display. She studied art at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Va.
The Green Goat Gallery is located at 516 South Salisbury Ave. Family Ties will be on display through December. For information call 704-639-0606 or email greengoatgallery@bellsouth.net.
