The Brookwood Cafe Displays Colleen Miller Artwork
Now through August, my work will be on display in an art exhibit at The Brookwood Cafe. A lovely cozy restaurant/coffee shop in Hamilton, NJ.
Stop by and see about 20 of my most recent works, many from this spring and summer. The theme is botanicals — represented in different styles and different subject matter. Although you know I love the sunflowers, so you will find those! Also, you will find fresh works — there are some that I have not posted or published on my online shop!
The address is 3133 Quakerbridge Road, Hamilton, NJ 08619 and the hours are 8 AM – 3 PM Wednesdays to Sundays. They are on summer hours. Pop over when you can and have a meal or coffee and check out the art.
More info on the cafe on their site.

What is Mixed Media Art?
Mixed media is a type of art that brings together multiple media (paint, ink, etc.) into one work. Thus, an artist combines different media and techniquest to convey her ideas.
Examples include: a work on canvas that uses paint, pencil and inks, a work on board that uses paper adhered to the surface (collage); a piece of art that has acrylic painting with fabric or textiles.
Further, early application of mixed media techniques were done by artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.
