March Mixed Media Madness at Artist Alley
As you probably know, I'm truly passionate about The Artists of Artist Alley and the work that they create. (The assemblage above, "Check Mate" was created by Raleigh Artist, Jeanne Rhea.) If it's possible, I'm even more excited than usual to share the news of this weekend's openings with you today.
We'll be celebrating First Friday on March 6th from 5:00 - 9:00 PM. This month's theme with be March Mixed Media Madness, and the work of The Alley's Mixed Media Artists will be featured. Many of these artists will be joining the festivities; conversation will sparkle; tasty treats will be served; and a casual good time will be had by all! (You'll also have the opportunity for a sneak-preview of some of the Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild's M4 creations too. More on that in the next paragraph...)
THEN...on Saturday March 7th from 2:00 - 4:00, Artist Alley will be hosting an opening for The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild. Twenty-two talented artists from The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild will unveil the results of M4: The Mixed Media Madness Mission. In January each of these artists received an identical kit of random objects. Their mission was to create an original work of art using every bit of it; and the results are truly amazing!
This event promises to be unlike any opening you've ever attended! If you've heard the term "Mixed Media", and you've been mixed-up as to what the fuss is all about, this weekend will provide you with the perfect opportunity to experience it for yourself. (If you aren't able to join us on Saturday, this limited-run-show will be on display at The Alley through Friday, March 27th.)
