Mixed Media Challenge

Tonight is Final Friday at Tessera Fine Art Gallery, and this month one of the Featured Artist walls is filled with entries by participants of the Mixed Media challenge.

Each artist purchased a pack of mixed media materials like vintage film strips, pattern tissue, upholstery samples, vintage seam bindings, assorted papers, buttons, and more.  The challenge was to use at least five of those elements in a mixed media piece that was 11 x 14, 12 x 12, or smaller.

Some of the artists are professionals while others are amateur artists.  In both cases, I think the results are amazing!  I love seeing all the interesting ideas that came from very similar materials.

And now there is a new mixed media challenge …. color themed collage packs!  Same rules: at least five of the pack’s elements must be used and same size restriction.  The packs are available for purchase at Tessera Fine Art Gallery.  Finished pieces are due by June 14 and will be featured during the June final Friday.  A big THANK YOU to Tessera Fine Art Gallery for such a fun opportunity!
