"Definitions" Exhibit

I'm excited to announce that "Peel Away The Layers" and "Torn" will be part of the San Fernando Valley Arts Council and Valley Arts Alliance exhibit called "Definitions: An Artist's Relationship to Techniques + Medium".

"Peel Away The Layers" by Mia Bloom

"Torn" by Mia Bloom
The call for entry wanted artwork that showed the techniques and mediums that have made a lasting impact on the artist and their art.

I thought about my "Peel Away The Layers" series that incorporated used tea bag papers. I've been so inspired by using this material. This technique is being used as a metaphor for growth/aging.  As we get older or grow, the layers are peeled away to reveal the person we have become.

The exhibit is being shown at the Canoga Park Youth Arts Center, 7222 Remmet Avenue, Canoga Park, CA 91303. It runs from Monday, March 4th to Saturday, March 16th. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 9th 6pm-9pm. I will be at the opening reception and hope to see some friendly faces.
