Mixed Media Madness Mission (M4) 2010

CMMAG member and Artist Alley owner Jean Skipper once again offered a challenge to the Guild.  The theme for 2010 coincided with the 1st Annual Palustris Festival in Southern Pines, where her gallery is located. Twenty five member of CMMAG took on this year's kit challenge, which wasn't exactly a kit.  This year, the 22 required items had to be collected by each participant (no more pizza boxes!).  The items were:

Pine…Pine Needles…A Pine Cone…Anything and Everything “Pine” Will Qualify
Something that Starts with The Letter *P*
Light Bulb(s)
Metal Washer(s)
Something made of Wood
Twine, String, Fiber or Thread
Bead(s) (As many as you’d like, and as many different kinds as you’d like.)
Something Blue
Coin(s) or Token(s) (As many as you’d like, and as many different kinds as you’d like.)
Something Made of Glass
Treasure(s) From The Great Outdoors
Part or All of a Book
Something from the Kitchen
Tissue Paper(s)
Thing-a-Ma-Jig (Optional)
Doo-Hickie (Optional)
Gee-Gaw (Optional)

Here are just some of the creations of our members.  As always, there were astounding pieces, and each one reflected the creativity, imagination and in some cases, the personality of the artist. 
Note:  photography by CMMAG member Lucy Shupe.  Thanks, Lucy!   Artwork shown by:  , Angela Thompson, Ashanti Walther, Autumn McCollough, Carolyn Coyle, Diana Keever, Denise Saunders, Donna Sloma and Jean Skipper.  More to come.
Stay tuned!
