Solana Beach Library hosts exhibit by artist Mona Mills


“Transitions,” an innovative exhibit of large-scale figurative oil paintings by local artist Mona Mills, will be on display at the Solana Beach Library, 157 Stevens Ave., during July.

Mills’ recent works are her “transition” into an original and unusual style which incorporates the human figure in abstract design.

“The figure is still there, up front and clearly prominent, but it is now an integral part of the surrounding environment,” said Mills. “Contemporary, Post Contemporary, and ‘none of the above’ in effect, the images present the natural figure in colorful context.”

Mills has worked her entire life as a professional artist. She was born in Chicago and attended the Art Institute at the University of Chicago. Her murals brighten the walls of many San Diego County Library branches, and she has also served as an art instructor at many local schools.
