Mix It Up
In-Gallery & Online: January 6 - 27
In this exhibit, artists push the boundaries of “norm.” Works reflect unique subjects — or perhaps a new perspective on classical subjects and mediums. Works represent a variety of experimentations with mediums, 2D and 3D.
View the award winning works in the following slideshow (when announced at 7:00pm), and browse the full exhibit down below. All works are for sale unless listed otherwise.
You can also experience the Mix It Up show in-person by visiting the gallery: Tuesdays through Sundays, 12:00 – 4:00 PM.

“It was a real delight to judge this month’s exhibition, Mix It Up. There are many ways in which the ideas embodied in the title of the exhibition, Mix It Up, can be expressed. The term “mixed media” usually refers to the use of more than one material in an artwork. But mixing it up can also represent a move beyond one’s usual artistic practice, materially or conceptually, and the artists whose work was chosen to be included in the exhibition interpreted the prompt in imaginative and often thought-provoking ways.
True to the term “mixed media,” this month’s artists incorporate collage, found materials (aka “junk”), textiles, glass, wood, metal, and utilized other non-traditional processes in their works, often alongside oil or acrylic paints, pastels, drawing and sculpture. However, it is also evident that these artists pushed themselves to experiment with the content of their work, whether through composition, color, and perspective, as well as the ideas they attempt to convey. The works included in this exhibition embody a certain joy that comes with experimentation and considering the world around us from a fresh perspective. What a wonderful way to start 2023!”
