Seth Apter's "The Pulse of Mixed Media 5x5 Project"
Seth Apter, mixed-media artist, wrote the book, "The Pulse of Mixed Media." The book is a creative representation of an artistic community where artists shared their secrets and passions, and their art. Seth had such a great response that he is doing an online version of this on his blog, http://thealteredpage.blogspot.com The project is titled "5x5, A Collaborative Art Project."
Seth asked artists survey questions and the artists had to create art (5x5 piece) based on their answers. The questions were:
1. If your artwork could talk, what would it say?
2. Who has had the most impact on your creative life?
3. What is the one thing you have never shared with the creative community?
Seth will be posting each submission every Sunday through the months of November and December. Part of the 5x5 project was also featured in the November/December 2012 issue of Somerset Studio magazine.
I submitted art to all three questions and my first piece based on question #3 is posted on his blog now. I would post a photo here but it is more fun to find it on his blog, plus it is worth the trip over there to see the other work. This has been a goal of mine to be featured on Seth's blog, so scoot on over there now and take a peek! http://thealteredpage.blogspot.com
