Buzz, Melt & Create - Explorations in Encaustic will showcase a variety of local artists who will demonstrate how beeswax, the natural ingredient used in encaustic, can be combined with printmaking, photography and even built into three dimensional sculptures.
Inspired by Art Gyms’ recently opened encaustic workspace and the installation of a bee hive on its roof-top, curator Elke McGuire brings together works by Patricia Aaron, Alane Holsteen, Dylan Gebbia-Richards, Katie Kalkstein and Laura Tyler for this unique exhibition.
The Opening and Artist Reception happens on June 22, from 5-8 pm at Art Gym. The artists will be present, with a special tasting by Bee Ranch, a local confectioner who creates candies featuring raw honey. This event is free and open to the public.
