Mixed Messages Show at Citrine Jan 14, 2022 to March 27, 2022
Mixed Media artwork combines traditional art mediums in creative ways which encourage us to appreciate all the differences –
Wood and metal, Cold Wax and Oil, watercolor and crayons, acrylic and ink, pottery and fabric…. Combined to make something remarkable.
Life is like that…..mixing joy and sadness, challenges to scramble our established patterns. Faced with increasing divergence, we must look deeper to understand complex relationships. Opposites attract – or do they? Is what we think of as attraction just a compelling tension? Can we find a safe place in a world with so many differences — so many dangers?
We are inviting artists to submit both 2-D and 3-D Mixed Media work for this juried show. Preference will be given to works combining various materials and methods to express the dynamic tension created by human love in all its stages and personification.

In this 3 day workshop artists will explore abstract painting using oil, cold wax and mixed media. Work will be mostly on panels and some paper. Artists will be encouraged to experiment with combining techniques such as layering, creating texture, combining different media, using a variety of conventional and unconventional tools and expanding their mark making techniques. The workshop includes instructor demonstrations, group discussions and critiques, along with plenty of time to paint and experiment. Daily refreshments and lunches will be provided at no additional cost.
This workshop is geared for artists with intermediate skills – but specific experience with oil and cold wax is not required. However, this class is not appropriate for beginning painters.
