> DESCRIPTION

 Beginning July 3rd a mixed media group show : Courage to Imagine.  Opening reception July 6th 2012 5:00-9:00 pm.

This collection of recent works by Pamela Holmes, Mimi LaPlant, Ananda Oliveri, Jim Meilander, Terry Church, Susan Spencer and Michael Wilson is a lively representation of the process, struggles and emotions surrounding this art form that is exploding in our 21st century art market.

Mixed media, in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed.

When creating a painted or photographed work using mixed media it is important to choose the layers carefully and allow enough drying time between the layers to ensure the final work will have integrity. If many different media are used it is equally important to choose a sturdy foundation upon which the different layers are imposed.

A phrase sometimes used in relationship to mixed media is, "Fat over lean." In other words: "don't start with oil paints. Plan to make them the final layer."

Many effects can be achieved by using mixed media. Found objects can be used in conjunction with traditional artist media, such as paints and graphite, to express a meaning in the everyday life. In this manner, many different elements of art become more flexible than with traditional artist media.

This lively compilation of recent works by these artists presents a rare chance to view a rich display of current mixed media and how this unique form fits into our contemporary art scene. It is the renaissance of art in America today.

The Courage to Imagine: Mixed Media Group Show runs through the month of July at The Beat Art Gallery, 109 West Perkins Street, Ukiah, Ca, 95482.
