Encaustic, has an ancient history and an increasing resurgence of interest. The challenge of heating and cooling the beeswax captures the dynamic of chaos and demands control unlike that of any other painting medium. Encaustic medium is creating a wide variety of effect and depths in the layers beneath. Abstract pieces explore the possibilities of texture and depth that can be created with encaustics. In stark contrast, realistic pieces explore the detail and near photo realism you can achieve in encaustic painting. The overall effect produces a tactile pattern that captivates the viewer and entices them to touch.
The exhibiting artists are: Kendra Bulgrin, Algoma; Ginnie Cappaert, Egg Harbor; Bob Fesser, New Berlin; Jessie Fritsch, Stevens Point; Micki High, Cedarburg; Mel Kolstad, Fond du Lac; Lisa Larson Lee, Luck; Randy Lee, Luck; Cindy Lesperance, McHenry, IL; John Lockwood, West Bend; Terri Lockwood, West Bend; Denise Presnell, Sheboygan; Sarah Rehmer, Chicago, IL; Karen Robison, Elkhart Lake; Mary Ellen Sisulak, Ellison Bay; Gina Studelska, Grafton; Tracy Thomas, Oconomowoc.
