The 6th Annual Encaustic Invitational exhibition opens Saturday, March 5th at the local Conrad Wilde Gallery on 6th Avenue. Before the opening of the exhibition there will be an artist talk at 5 p.m. followed by a reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. This exciting exhibition features 20 established artists from across the United States.
The Invitational responds to growing interest on the part of artists and the public in the encaustic medium (combining melted beeswax mixed with paint, pigments, and natural resins). The lush, sensual surfaces, translucent layers of rich color, vibrant texture, and incredible depth are just a few of the many reasons for the enthusiasm!
Works exhibited represent a range of visual and conceptual themes as they demonstrate many of these intrinsic qualities of the medium.
Featured Artists Include:
Willow Bader, Deborah Kapoor, Brandy Eiger, Sharon Kyle Kuhn,
Fanne Fernow, Catherine Nash, Molly Geissman, Jane Allen Nodine,
Alison Golder, Gwendolyn Plunkett, Ruth Gooch, Toby Sisson,
