Working in Wax
May 3 – June 21, 2009

Opening reception:  Wednesday, May 6,  5:00-7:00 p.m.

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. This technique was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100-300 CE, in the Blachernitissa and other early icons, as well as in many works of 20th-century American artists, including Jasper Johns. This national exhibition, juried by Eileen P. Goldenberg,will feature some of the most renowned artists working in this medium today and will provide an arena for educating other artists and students about the past and possibilities of working in wax.
