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

In the midst of our hurried, over-scheduled, over-stimulated lives, making art offers us a space to retreat. Being present with pen and paper or brush and canvas calms us down, invites us into the flow and before we realize it, our bodies, minds and spirits are restored.

Understanding this vital, healing role of creative expression, the North Light mixed-media team decided to dedicate the fourth edition of Incite, The Best of Mixed Media to restorative power of making art!

We’re looking for outstanding mixed-media art that reflects the ways your studio time helps you Relax, Restore, Renew. Whether it’s the meditative technique you use to create a mandala or the way your favorite color palette instantly lifts your mood, we want to hear about it and to see how your own manner of art-making restores you. Because we’re looking for the best of mixed media, we’re looking for entries in a variety of categories from fiber arts to encaustic, painting to art journaling, Zentangle to collage and more. If your art is selected you’ll be asked to share the art techniques you use to relax; in what ways does making art restore your sense of wellness; or in what way does your art reflect your sense of renewal.
