>the mixer - news, tips + fun from mix creative Welcome the perfect mix mix and match get into the mix



Mix Creative is excited to announce that owner Katrina Hase will have her first ever exhibition and sale of her art in conjunction with Art-A-Whirl this weekend. Also exhibiting is freelance graphic designer Cheryl Rosefelder-Lies.


Hase will show a mix of acrylic paintings and gouache/color pencil illustrations. The theme is Minneapolis architecture and ranges from representational to geometric/abstracted.


Hase began painting in 2002 after taking a class taught by Felix Ampah at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. Since that time Hase and Rosefelder-Lies, also a student of Ampah's, began an informal painting group and completed dozens of works together. Following the sudden death of Felix Ampah in Februrary, they recommitted to showing their work in his memory. 


"I struggle to find balance in a style that is both representational but pushes toward looser and abstracted." Hase says of her art. "I like the idea of showing ordinary subjects in a way that forces you to notice something real or sublime that you might not notice in real life or in a photograph." 


Rosefelder-Lies has been an artist for as long as she can remember. "This includes anything from off the top of my head to the pirate and turtle in the 'Can you draw me?' Minnesota Art School advertisement in the back of my mom's Reader's Digest. After a lapse of some years I started painting again. I find inspiration in people I know, cityscapes and the pooches in my life." In addition to painting, Cheryl has illustrated children's books and works as a graphic designer.
