I’m very excited to announce that I’m in an encaustic art show that will be held at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, where I will be showing three pieces from my Clearwings Series. This is will be one of the most public places my work has shown, and I’m so proud that I’m giving my little paintings new frames just for the occasion. This show will also hang longer than any other show I’ve been in, so I’m hoping that this will create more public interest in my work. Here are the details for the show:
The show will hang from January 5th to March 31st.
There will be a reception for the show on February 2nd, which is the First Thursday of the month.

This show is being run by the fabulous Kelly Williams, and this show blurb below is taken from her Facebook page.
“This work focuses not only on the physical senses—the obvious visual, the feel, even the scent of the medium—but also the sense of self. It is a reflection of how the artists represent their authentic selves at some level? Reconnecting to center, finding truths, having epiphanies, truly ‘coming to your senses’ are all addressed in this wide range of artwork.
Encaustic paint is a sensory medium and experience. This form of painting originated in ancient Greece and Egypt. The paint is beeswax based and uses multiple heat methods to fuse each applied layer of molten paint. Contemporary artists have employed modern methods and have incorporated many diverse backgrounds to bring this lost art of painting back into the mainstream.”
