I’ve used both oils and acrylics, and enjoy the strengths each brings to my work.”

Mish Mash – [a collection or mixture of unrelated things]

Mish Mash is defined as a collection or mixture of unrelated things. Our “Mish Mash” membership exhibit in August will shake up the traditional with unusual combinations. You can combine several works together to create a new one. We all have those pieces that didn’t quite work, create a collage or a new work with them. Another idea is to create artwork on or with unusual items. Do a painting on a chair, box, dishes or anything else you have around the house. Or just combine items together into an assemblage or sculpture. Have fun & be creative!
