Exhibit: Making Magic With Mixed Media

  • Whitewater Arts Alliance 402 West Main Street Whitewater, WI, 53190 United States (map)

Cultural Arts Center Hours
Thursday - Sunday 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Closing reception: Sunday, August 26 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm

As of July 17, artists have pledged more than 80 pieces 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 goal of this exhibit is to stimulate interest in mixed media among artists from around the state. Artwork must be completed within the last two years and not previously exhibited at the Cultural Arts Center.

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 3:00p.m. They include:

Thursday, August 9 :"Alcohol Ink and Pen" by Kathy Gibbs
Friday, August 17: "Watercolor and Mixed Media" by Karolyn Alexander
Thursday, August 23: "From Pop Can to Pop Art" by Dawn Hunter

These demos are free, and no reservation is required. However, for planning purposes, the instructors would appreciate your letting us know if you plan to attend. Please email Linda Long or call 262-473-5538 with the demo(s) of interest to you.
