Some Like It Hot: Works in Encaustic

Saturday, Jan. 13 - Saturday, Feb. 17
Reception: Saturday, Jan. 20 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm

Encaustic painting dates as far back as the 5th century B.C. The process involves heating a mixture of beeswax, resin, and pigments, which are applied while hot to a rigid surface such as a wood panel, and further manipulated.
