Art at miXt

Local Art & Universal Appeal

Since its inception in 2001, the 2-mile corridor along Route 1 known as the Gateway Arts District has developed into a rejuvenated enclave full of eclectic shops, galleries, restaurants, and entertainment. We’re excited to provide local artists a place to showcase their work and a community that supports them through exhibits, markets, events, and advertising.

The Corner Space

Divine Enlightenment
Erica and Kenny Thomas

Kenny and Erica’s artwork is a conbination of Abstract and Pop-Realism. This showcase is centered around spiritual enlightenment and the divine connection we all have to each other. Some of the paintings are recognizable, while others evoke feelings. The artists aim to draw viewers into a fund and inspiring space with bright colors of acrylic, spray paint and other mixed media.

miXt Food Hall’s rotating art exhibition spaces have an open call for local artists to submit their work for consideration. Please contact John Paradiso, Curator of Programs at Portico Gallery & Studios, at and include a link to your website.
