“Each one’s a little bit different process,” noted Farrell as she and Burke studied the works. It takes a close inspection to determine where the photography ends and the painting begins.
Burke and Farrell are excited to see the results of the others artists’ collaborative efforts in The Blend exhibit.
“I have heard there are some pretty massive pieces,” said Farrell. One three-member team includes a painter/graphic designer and two metal workers. “I believe they created a 10-foot structure. It’s an installation. That’ll be kind of neat.”
They also know of a fabric artist who is teamed up with a 93-year old poet. “She’s incorporating poetry into a fabric piece,” said Farrell.
The Blend exhibit is just the latest adventure for the society's dynamic group of artists.
“It’s growing,” said Farrell. “It’s exciting. There’s always stuff going on.”
PAS has already offered a number of workshops and classes. Students of those sessions will exhibit their works Dec. 7 at the PAS Gallery. That show comes after a two-week exhibit in Noblesville, where the Platinum Living Gallery hosts a PAS exhibit beginning Nov. 16. Members are also exhibiting at the Pendleton Community Public Library.
On December 14, PAS hosts an ornament-making class implementing the art of quilling. Class fee is $35 for adults, first accompanying child is free, and a second child can join in for an additional fee. Kids must be 10 years or older to manage the level of complexity of the project.
In the new year, PAS has a number of programs scheduled, among them plein air, portrait painting with John Reynolds and even digital pinhole photography.
