Mia Brownell recently exhibited in a solo show with Alix Sloan: "Stomach Acid Dreams." A graduate of Carnegie Mellon and State University of New York, Buffalo, Mia has been teaching painting and drawing since 1993. She has held a tenured faculty position at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven since 2003. She was recently awarded the Southern Connecticut State University's Faculty Scholar Award and promoted to Full Professor.

"Brownell describes visiting a supermarket and being
'transported to a unique place without seasons' - I think 'transported' has to be understood in both senses of the term - when she views the Eden of organic life on the fruit counters. On the other hand, she acknowledges a debt to Dutch Old Master still lives of fruit. Thus she stands between the supermarket and the museum - in the commercial cornucopia of modern America and in the grand tradition of Old Master still life."
