Mixus Celebrates 10th Anniversary At TheatreWorks With A Special Mixed Media Show, May 31- July 19, 2013


MIXUS Mixed Media Show Opening Reception: June 13th, 2013, 5:30-7:00pm. 

This is a very interesting post for me. Ten years ago I helped form a group of Mixed Media artists who named themselves "Mixus". Now to be correct Mixus was really mixus ( the first letter "m" was intended to be lower case).  But mixus is always promoted as Mixus, no matter how hard the group tries to be true to their original identity.

Mixed Media Art Show Runs Through July, 19th, 2013 At TheatreWorks 

Whether mixus is spelled with a capitol "M" or not, mixus will be celebrating their 10th anniversary in Connecticut's capital city, Hartford with a special show at Theatreworks from May 31- July 19, 2013. The public is invited to an opening reception Thursday June 13th, 2013, 5:30-7:00 pm.

Ten members of mixus will be presenting their Mixed Media artwork including Judy Cantwell, Elaine Edelberg, Joy Floyd, Betty Friedman, Vi Joshua, Hannah Libman, Jill Henderson Pasanen, Caroln Q Tertes and Gretchen Wohlgemuth.

The mixus show coincides with the current Theatreworks performance "Becoming Dr Ruth" .
  
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became America's most famous sex therapist
