September Special Events: "We Are Mixed Media 2" and "High Tea"

The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild is pleased to announce two very special events taking place in September.  "We Are Mixed Media 2," an exhibit of the work of 15 of our member artists will run from Friday, September 5 through Thursday, September 25 at the Blake Street Shops and Studios, 300 Blake Street, Raleigh, NC.  The opening reception will coincide with Raleigh's First Friday events on Friday, September 5 from 6pm to 9pm, and many of the artists will be there to welcome guests and speak about their work. 

The following week, the Guild's "High Tea" display, which coincides with Raleigh's SPARKcon arts events, will also be at Blake Street during the weekend of September 11--13. "High Tea" was inspired by artist Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party" .  CMMAG artists present their vision of an art-filled tea party; designing teapots, cups, saucers, placemats and centerpieces with a mixed media flair.

Visitors to Blake Street Shops and Studios during SPARKcon weekend will be able to vote on their favorite entry in both exhibits, for a Viewer's Choice award.

Here's a 'sneak peek' at three of our "High Tea" see them all, and "We Are Mixed Media 2", visit Blake Street Studios this month.  See you there!
