MEET THE ARTIST RECEPTION – May 5th 6-9pm
Exhibit Title: “BUZZ – the art of encaustic painting ”
Blue Wing Gallery will host eight artists for this First Friday Art Walk. The artists work that will bee featured on display is created to help kick off The California Honey Festival weekend. What are encaustics? “It’s simply beeswax, tree resin and pure pigment, painted in a hot, melted state. Encaustic medium carries the color beautifully, with clarity and vibrancy,” The techniques are ancient, and the tools and materials have been used for centuries.
This amazing, translucent (and aromatic) medium dates back to first century Rome and is seeing a resurgence today in many fine art forms, including mixed media, sculpture, print-making and many other techniques.
Watch this video featuring Artist Linda Nunes
to learn how the medium is heated, transferred to wood panels, and then sculptured, textured or combined with other materials to create unique works of great depth and complexity.
The exhibition will open with a Artists Reception on May 5th, from 6 to 9 p.m. and continue through May 26th. Blue Wing Gallery is located at 405 Main Street.
