ART - Mix it Up Art Show
Last week my art journal class had their reception for the art show of their work. Here are some of the pieces they did...
This one is all collage done on a large piece of cardboard.
She used drinking straws as the border!
This one is all painted papers except for the background.
The colors just pop in person.
This is zentangles over a magazine face with crazy eyes!
This one is painted papers.
This is all collage. The woman who did it is a fine artist
and is finding it challenging to let go and just play.
I think she did a great job here.
This Victorian Lady is all collage...some napkins, some wrapping papers
and lots of other embellishments.
The artist almost didn't enter this one because she doesn't think it's good!
I love it!!
This piece is all painted papers and is stunning in person. The photo
doesn't do it justice. It simply glows!
This one is done with Sharpies and alcohol.
Lots of embellishments on this one.
Of course, I love the purple!
Again, this is all collage using painted papers
and magazine images.
She used molding paste to make the flowers.
This was done by another fine artist in my class.
I wish you could see the colors in person. It's gorgeous!
LOVE this one!!
And finally this is one of the collage pieces I have in the show.
All little snippets of magazine images and lots of doodles.
Here I am (squinty eyes and all!) with our Mayor Ledford.
He's such a nice man and comes to all our events.
He is a great support for our senior center.
And this is Karen (L) and Jennifer (R) at the front desk.
HB and I got there early so HB could take photos of all the artwork before people got there and blocked the view. It was a very nice reception but everyone came during the first hour and then it was quiet during the second one. But that's okay because I got to show off all the beautiful art that everyone made in class.
This is part of the article than was on the front page of our local newspaper. It was a very nice write-up and I was even compared to Picasso! That's okay with me!!
