Jim Giddings and Petria Mitchell.

BRATTLEBORO — As professional painters for more than four decades, Petria Mitchell and Jim Giddings were familiar with what it takes to make a living as artists. So, they decided to help others like themselves.

The couple opened Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts, a gallery in downtown Brattleboro, in 2014.

Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts of Brattleboro is the recipient of a 2022 Ewing Arts Award in the category of presenter of the arts. Video by Justin Altman.
