 about SLMM 

The Society of Layerists in Multi-Media is a non-profit organization intended to serve as a network for artists who express a holistic perspective. The layering process is individualistic, but there are relationships among Layerists’ techniques. They frequently add or take away material, layer by layer as an analogue for aspects of nature, and the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. Most Layerists are mature, proficient artists who have achieved a meditative level of creativity. They imbue their work with meaning. Therefore, we say that it is not the technique that distinguishes a layered work of art so much as the mind of the artist who creates it. The layers we refer to are both physical and metaphorical.


SLMM was founded in 1982 by Mary Carroll Nelson in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Membership is open to everyone.
