I am one week away from the opening of the “Mélange of Experience” exhibit opening at Arts Council of Moore County’s galleries at Campbell House. This exhibit is a group show with several other local artists. I will be bringing 18 new pieces to the gallery next week. Exciting!
Mélange means a mixture, or group of different things or people. We decided on the the title because of the diverse styles among the four of us exhibiting, but also because of the experience we all have within our art form. When I was creating these 18 new pieces, I embraced the title. I wanted to experiment with some ideas/themes, but nothing in my experimentation was a new technique per se. I have a long, diverse history with creative arts and it was inspiring to follow a whim. I like that the title we chose gave me permission to play.
