The Mountain Arts Community Center on Signal Mountain will feature the art work of Michael Field July 19-Aug. 16 in the newly opened Gallery 5.   His show, Portraits and Landscapes, will open Saturday evening with a reception from 5-7 p.m.  The reception is open to the public and there is no charge for admission. 

Mr. Field is a well know portrait artist in the Chattanooga area.  He is also a pilot which enables him to use his own aerial photography as inspiration for some of his new landscape paintings.

Mr. Field taught for many years at the Harris School of Art in Nashville and later chose to do portrait painting exclusively with clients throughout the southeast.  

He will be offering a class at the MACC July 21-25 from 2-4 p.m.  It will coincide with his show in Gallery 5.   The class will focus on mixing colors and building on the understanding of light and shadow.  Cost of class will be $140 ($125 for MACC members.)  

The gallery is open during MACC hours, Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
