This year, June 25th, 26th + 27th, the 47th annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts features Luminous Layers Exploring Contemporary Encaustic.
This cornerstone exhibit is the most comprehensive display of encaustic paintings and sculpture assembled in the Pacific Northwest. Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting where beeswax, resin and pigment are layered and fused to produce a luminous surface that captures and transforms light.
See how artists melt, layer, scrape, sculpt and create their visions in wax. Lectures, displays and demos featuring some of leading encaustic artists will explore the techniques of this art form throughout the three-day Festival.
My 9-panel piece, Hibiscus, is included in the juried show. I’ll also be giving a docent tour on Saturday, June 26th from 2-5 PM followed by a demonstration using silk images and painting with encaustic.
This international juried show was curated by encaustic artist Cari Hernandez, Tom Burns, publisher and founder of Artworks Magazine and Kristina Butters, director of sales and marketing at Butters Gallery in Portland,Oregon.
