Unlimited Variations of Mixed Media
From oil paint that has been embellished with metal leaf, to a combination of recycled materials, to an integration of digital art with collage and so much more — when artists apply skill, innovation and imagination to their use of “Mixed Media” there are no limits to what they can achieve! We look forward to presenting a wide variety of “Inspirational Art in Mixed Media” to present the breadth and depth these extraordinary mixed media artists are capable of creating.

The Curator: Renee Phillips, Founder of The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS, and Director of Manhattan Arts International, NYC, NY states: “For this exhibition ‘Inspirational Art in Mixed Media’ I am looking for art that is a unique and creative combination of two or more different mediums. The art must have: a strong inspirational impact upon the viewer; creative originality; and superior technical skills in the chosen mediums. As part of the jurying process I will visit the artists’ websites to learn more about them and view their overall body of artwork.” Read more about Renee Phillips.
