MIXUS Mixed Media Exhibit , Gallery On The Green, Canton, Connecticut,, November 13th -December 19th, 2010

November 13th, 2010

If you love Mixed Media Art and Collage, you will really enjoy MIXUS, a group of Connecticut artists who are exhibiting their work during the Annual Holiday Show at The Gallery On The Green, Canton, Connecticut.

Today, I previewed the show before it's opening tomorrow, Saturday, November 13th, 2010, from 6 to 9 P.M. and can report that Mixed Media enthusiasts will really be treated to a wonderful exhibit.

How Mixus Got Started

As one of the founding members of Mixus (now I'm busy writing and not making too much art) , I can tell you about this wonderful group of creative women from Connecticut. The group met while taking art classes and workshops at The Farmington Valley Art Center in Avon, Connecticut with Debi Pendell. When Debi left the area to relocate her studio to North Adams, Massachusetts, the gals decided to continue meeting as a group to discuss art matters, show collectively and share their art experiences.

Starting off as a small group, other collage artists in the area joined the group and it now has a very lively group of 12-15 members who all work quite differently but share the love of Mixed Media.

Gallery On The Green, Canton, Connecticut

The Gallery On The Green is a wonderful venue for Mixus. The Mixus exhibit is on the second floor of the gallery, while the Holiday show is on the first floor. If you are in town Saturday night, be sure to stop by the gala opening. The Mixus group always offers lovely refreshments at all their shows. The show runs through December, 19th, 2010
