We know things have been quiet on the blog front for Village Artisans, but that's only because our artisans have been busy doing what we do best....MAKING ART.
We are extremely excited to share some exciting news about artisan, Pete Mitas. He took the award for the Most Creative Use of Paper at the Rosewood Arts Center's Annual Dayton's Area Works on Paper exhibition.
"Urban Scrawl" won the Most Creative Use of Paper award at the 22nd Annual Dayton Area Works on Paper exhibition. The exhibition is open to the public until March 9th at the Rosewood Arts Centre, 2655 Olsen Drive in Kettering.
Pete Mitas, a member of Village Artisans in Yellow Springs, hand colored both sides of artist trading cards with bold patterns and built the structure to enable the viewer to see each side of as many cards as possible. The design on each side of a card took 20 to 30 minutes to do and the structure was completed on and off over a period of three months. The work was completed only when Pete ran out of clips he used to connect the cards together.
