From the time we opened in 2005 Apotheca has been honored to be surrounded by some the regions most infectious creatives. Each season we are thrilled to highlight an artist or two and share them with you! Art builds community, and community is all about participation.
Current Artist: Mia Cross
Through a diverse body of work spanning multiple mediums and themes, Mia Cross explores color, the human figure, and narrative. Her oil paintings, and in particular her portraiture, demonstrate a fixed fascination with pattern and skin. When painting, Cross pays special care to creating engaging color relationships, sometimes harmonious and sometimes dissonant. Cross stitches her colors together like a quilt, often laying them down with a palette knife and leaving them untouched for the remainder of the painting process. Her recent work explores where the figure begins and ends when immersed in its surroundings.
