The Whitewater Arts Alliance is enthusiastically seeking artists to participate in the “Making Magic with Mixed Media” show at the Cultural Arts Center, 402 West Main Street, during the month of August 2018.
Show organizers are looking forward to receiving a wide variety of entries from artists working in 2-D or 3-D. In this first-of-its-kind show at the Whitewater CAC, mixed media is broadly defined to include the creation of pieces of art using more than one medium — acrylics, oil, watercolor, pastels, pen and ink, pencil, etc. — to acrylic with collage, oil and cold wax, assemblage, etc. The options can be as narrow or broad as one’s imagination. The Whitewater Arts Alliance is excited to provide a showcase where this magical art will be featured and celebrated.
The entry form can be found at http://whitewaterarts.org/PDFs/WAAMixedMediaEntryForm.Final.pdf There is no entry fee for this exhibit.
The goal of this exhibit is to stimulate interest in mixed media among our artists. Artwork must be completed within the last two years and not previously exhibited at the Cultural Arts Center.
“Making Magic with Mixed Media” will run from Thursday, August 2 to Sunday, August 26. The CAC will be open from Noon to 5 p.m. every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during that time. The closing reception will be held at the CAC on Sunday, August 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. Artists may pick up their pieces after the 2:30 p.m. awards presentation.
There will also be three demonstrations using different materials and techniques in mixed media. All will be held at the Cultural Arts Center (402 W Main Street) from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. They include
“Alcohol Ink and Pen” by Kathy Gibbs – Thursday, August 9
“Watercolor and Mixed Media” by Karolyn Alexander – Friday, August 17
