March Mixed Media Madness Opens at Artist Alley!

We have quite a weekend in store for you at Artist Alley! And the fun begins on Friday when The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild will grace us with their presence. I love every event that we host; but when these artists descend on The Alley, the word "Opening" is defined in a whole new way.

What do you get when you combine twenty-five Mixed Media Artists...a list of twenty-two random, unrelated, and downright unusual items... and a bottomless reserve of creativity?

Your guess is as good as mine!

Last year's First Annual Kit Challenge, was one of the most memorable of the year at Artist Alley, and I feel confident that this year will uphold the same tradition.

I hope to see you in person for March Mixed Media Madness... The Sequel!!!

The Palustris Festival!

Have you heard the buzz about The Palustris Festival ?

The inaugural Palustris Festival is being held right here in Moore County, North Carolina, from March 25th through March 28th. The festivities will include over 100 affordable events at various venues throughout our community. At Artist Alley, we've planned an opening for Friday night and another for Saturday afternoon.

(I promise that these will be events that you won't want to miss, and I'll post more about them soon!)

For now, be sure to visit The Palustris Website for details on all that's happening.
