Art Exhibit in Homestead, FL

Last night the family and I had the pleasure of visiting the Children's Museum on Krome Ave right here in homestead.  It was a solo opening featuring the works of Angeline Martinez (a local artist).  The materials used to create the various works were beyond the "standard" painting materials.  It included encaustics, acrylics, and mixed media.  The works are unique to say the least (that is a good thing).  Her work is so unique in fact that I believe once you are familiar with it you can pick it up out of a line up.  The work will be displayed there for the next month so if you get a chance drop by and take a look.  You will not be disappointed.

I know...  I know, this is a photography blog...  What does this have to do with photography?  A LOT!!!  We as photographers need to study all art to get a better handle on what we are trying to accomplish.  We are artists after all.  Looking at works as unique as Angeline's helps us to take chances with our own art.  Don't settle for the mundane or the "standard".  Go for the unique in your own works.  I am speaking of your own works that you do for you.  Often times clients have a certain style that they are looking for.  All the more reason to expand your repertoire.

Incase you missed the links at the beginning of this blog here they are again.  Check them out!!
