Stone Bridge Valley Art Exhibit: A Mix of Media
Sep 21 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

A Mix of Media is a unique art exhibit showcasing the work of local artist Linda Miller, learned educator and artist.

A Mix of Media describes Linda’s approach to making art. Photography provided the palette and inspiration for the works in this exhibit. Linda often works wet on wet, a technique that involves a combination of transparent and opaque watercolor paints, as well as watercolor pencils, water-soluble oil pastels, and watercolor crayons on wet paper. Painting with oil pastels and adding depth with graphite details has also become a common expression for Linda.

Learn about and see more of Linda’s experimental process of making art by visiting A Mix of Media September 6 through September 28.

For more information about the exhibit, please call (618) 576-9235.
