Light Affects: Encaustic Colorado

July 10 – September 26, 2021

Main Gallery

$7 Admission Ages 13+

In its simplest form, encaustic is a combination of beeswax, a little damar resin, and pigment. The mixture is brought to a molten state and applied with a brush to a rigid surface. Once it has cooled, this top surface is reheated so the wax melts into the layers beneath. It is this layering that gives an encaustic piece its unique depth, as well as allowing for interleaving other materials that make it so versatile.

This group exhibition by Colorado artists Patricia Aaron, Rhynus Cesark, Jane Guthridge & Susan Wasinger explores and celebrates the wide variety of style and subject matter possible in this luminous medium.
