Mixed Media Shop has changed. . .

My website at mixedmediashop.com is now my main website for both my gallery pages which feature my artwork and my thoughts on making art, which can be found on my art blog page. This is where I will write about the techniques that I use to make mixed media art and also about the development of ideas in my own artwork and my opinions about the art world in general. I hope that other artists will join in the discussion and share ideas.

I also want to post about what draws me to both contemporary art and the technology that influences it.

The odd contest or opportunity for artists may come up in my art blog, but for those looking for more here is a short list of sites to keep you up to date on some of the latest art contests and opportunities;

      Art Rubicon – which is described on the site as ‘A resource for artists’. While many of the resources focus on Alberta, there are lots of international listings as well.
      ArtShow is based out of the US but again there are many international competitions and opportunities listed.
      Manifest Gallery is a gallery that operates out of Cinncinati, Ohio and offers several annual contests as well as other opportunities for artists.
      Artists in Canada has been around for a while now and includes an artist’s directory as well as lots of listings with opportunities for artists.

    As always, make sure you understand what costs will be your responsibility before entering any contest or taking part in any ‘opportunities’. Read the fine print and good luck!
