XX 20 Works by Danielle Coenen

February 29 @ 6:00 pm

XX shows 20 works from four consecutive series developed between 2018 and 2020. These works will be on display from Saturday, February 22nd til March 29th. With the artist reception on February 29th.

Faces merge with abstract marks of paint and mixed media. At times, they are more evocative, with an intense gaze and deconstructed mouth or concealed eyes. Other times, the character’s expression is more quiet, but there is tension against the quality of the paint, looking eroded from different textures that are scraped and scratched at in several layers. Surreal palettes and dissipating forms bring an ethereal quality to the characters, allowing them to take shape and come undone again.

XX depicts the evolution that emerges from each series’ response to the one prior. The progression begins with smaller works on paper, then the focus shifts to a saturated color series more intent on capturing the subjects. The third series moves to flesh-toned pieces pushing realism and abstraction further in each direction, and finally, the last is a small-scale series of the same piece painted in five ways.

Important Coronavirus Update:

An Important Message from Mill No. 5:

After monitoring the Coronavirus situation we’ve come to the conclusion that it is our responsibility to be proactive leaders in our community. It is clear that the recommendation to practice social distancing and to avoid large gatherings is essential to slowing the spread of the infection, which is the key to avoiding the overwhelm on the medical system that many countries are now facing.

This being said, we also acknowledge the hardships that small businesses and entrepreneurs will face as more and more events and spaces close.

It is clear that the situation will change, and that we will need to be constantly monitoring, communicating and adjusting plans. For now, this is our plan:

Coffee and Cotton will remain open. We will expand on our serve safe practices with extended sanitization of surfaces. We will have to continuously monitor this decision as well.

-The Shops will be open based on their own individual preferences. Please check in with your favorite shops to see what hours they will be keeping.

-The Farm Market will run as a limited event. We understand that the farmers and producers rely heavily on market sales, and that many of our customers depend on the food they purchase on Sundays. We will re-evaluate this decision daily and work on precautions and sanitary procedures as well.

A Little Bazaar, The Luna Theater and Dows will be closed for the remainder of the month of March 

If you would like to support Mill No. 5 during these difficult times, you can purchase an e-gift card which can be used at Coffee and Cotton, Dows Soda Fountain, and The Luna Theater.


Thank you for your continued support!
