"Mixed media miniatures, mixed media miniatures, mixed media miniatures..."
Try saying that three times real FAST! I bet you can't do it. I could barely type it three times without my fingers freezing up.
Over the summer, we introduced readers to the wondrous original artworks available from our Art-O-Mat , a rehabilitated old cigarette machine that sits in The Kentucky Center's main lobby, between the box office and the bar.
For $5, you pull the handle, and out pops a miniature piece of original art that you can take home, give as a gift, or set on your desk at work. There are usually about two dozen items to choose from.
The photo shown above is a piece from David A. Franke's "Mind's Eye" series. Over the wood block, he layers paper, paint, ink, glass and wire mesh.
Proceeds from the Art-O-Mat help to support The Kentucky Center's statewide education programs. You can find out more about the national Art-O-Mat program here.
