A Mixing of Materials

This members-only show titled "Collage & Mixed Media" was a themed exhibit on display at Rainbow Stew in Yucca Valley between June and July of 2023.

The themes we present are always open to interpretation. We asked members to submit their favorite assembled beauties - collage and mixed media are related in that often unrelated objects are merged together to result in a finished product. Mixed media can be as simple as merging a feather and sand into your painting, or combining various mediums like acrylic, watercolor, pastel, and photography. Whereas collage can involve a wider collection of materials and possibly require no brushwork or painting medium at all. 

There was no limit to the age of creations or the type of medium - though we cannot truly accommodate more than one three-dimensional piece during any of our shows because of limited floor space. This installment of "Celebration" received nineteen (19) entries submitted by eleven (11) artists in the mediums of acrylics, mixed-media, oils, photography, and watercolor.

As always, we hope you find the exhibit inspiring, and while you are visiting Rainbow Stew, take advantage of the shopping opportunities provided by the very inviting gift shop of unique and hand made local arts, crafts, and curios.
