GOOD VIBRATIONS

exhibit + book signing

June 1st - 13th, 2012 opening Friday 6-8pm

Hosted by Gallery Ehva in conjunction with the 6th International Encaustic Conference

Curated by Laura Moriarty, Director of The Gallery at R&F

The twelve artists featured in GOOD VIBRATIONS represent a small fraction of artists who submitted their work to be considered for Encaustic Works '11, the inaugural edition of a biennial exhibition-in-print published by R&F Handmade Paints, and juried for 2011 by Conference Director, Joanne Mattera. Over 400 artists submitted their work for her consideration, and ultimately only 50 could be included in the book. To celebrate the release of EW'11, curator Laura Moriarty decided to make her selections from those artists who were passed by for the book. Bound by deference to the submission process, these artists submitted in good faith, and are now being honored for their fine work and professional good graces.

book signing 6/3, Sunday 6-8pm

Wax ball

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.

This technique was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100-300 AD, in the Blachernitissa and other early icons, as well as in many works of 20th-century American artists, including Jasper Johns.
