Mission and Goals
The MISSION of the Society of mixed media artists is to reach out to dedicated, innovative artists working in all forms of Mixed Media so that we may share our collective knowledge-to help inspire, exchange thoughts and ideas and to help others explore the never ending spectrum of Mixed Media.
Our GOAL is to raise public awareness and to introduce mixed media as an important and viable contribution with the fine arts community. Offering exhibitions, workshops, lectures, meetings, special events and literature, we provide support and opportunities for the novice to the professional.
