Painting in Wax

February 7 – May 30, 2020

Reception, Friday, February 7 ~ 5-7pm

Featuring works by Jessie Pollock, Laura Blackmer and Mary Ann Sullivan. An ancient method used as early as the 4th and 5th century BCE, encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The hot wax/paint is then applied to a prepared surface. An extraordinarily versatile medium, it is the perfect vehicle for modern artistic experimentation.
