Mixed Media

T-shirts are vividly painted by Daina Valiulis

We expect the artists to play with various media in their paintings.  However, here at the show you'll find the artisans are also mixing it up. T-shirts are painted the way an artist would treat a canvas. The jewellers mix old with new, precious with found items and  leather with metal to create unusual pieces.  Pottery is accented with reclaimed wood.   In the hands of these artisans mixing media has a whole new meaning.
