Melting Point: Contemporary Encaustic Works

SARAH B. SMITH GALLERY

Encaustic, the ancient art that dates back to the Greeks and uses hot pigmented beeswax, has made a resurgence in the art world after a quiet 3,000 year hiatus.  This exhibit is a curated selection of artists from the mid-Atlantic who all use encaustic in their work in dynamic ways.

Even with a shared interest in this unique medium, the work itself has a wide range of approaches: from organic to geometric to the narrative and sculptural.  

Participating Artists:

Giselle Gautreau, L. Michelle Geiger, Bridgette Guerzon Mills, Gina Louthian-Stanley, Lynda Ray, Jeannine Barton Regan, Kristie Edwards Wood

 

Kelly Oakes: Still

In the stillness of life, art is found.

Maddie Rhondeau–Rhodes: unknown thoughts

Maddie Rhondeau–Rhodes explores memory as it slips between the real and the imagined with bright bold paintings. Steeped in dark imagery and rooted in personal experience, her work investigates moments of clarity that illuminate and define self and identity. Paintings develop in an evolving, process-based dialogue with forms and figures that resolve in their own time.
