All winners will appear in the fifth edition of Incite, The Best of Mixed Media.

Throughout the ages, nature has been a primary source of inspiration for amazing art. Nature touches all of our senses, and the beauty and forces of nature are a part of us, and the art we create.

From the stars in the sky to the waves on the shore, from the wisdom of a tree, to the song of a bird, from the colors in a sunset to the changing of the seasons, the influence of nature on not only our daily existence, but the depth of our souls cannot be denied.

In this fifth edition of Incite, we’re looking for exceptional mixed-media art that expresses your own relationship with Nature, whether it’s a palette inspired by a field of flowers or an emotional response to the falling rain. How does Nature show up in your art?

We know the scope of mediums you work in is as expansive as Nature herself, so we are looking for entries in a variety of categories from painting, to fiber arts; jewelry to collage; illustration to sculpture and more. If your art is selected, you’ll be asked to share the techniques you use and explain how Nature influenced the work.
