EWATS & FUSE Encaustic Show Opening At The Kimball

Earlier this month, I had the honor of being part of an amazing encaustic show here in Park City at the Kimball Art Center. My teacher, Daniella Woolf curated an beautiful show with encaustic artists from around the country all who had either a textile background or influence in their work. The show, Encaustic With A Textile Sensibility opened on June 4th to a fantastic crowd, who were thrilled to learn about encaustic. My work was actually part of another show going on that same time, FUSE, which showcased local Utah encaustic artists.

The works displayed for both concurrent shows were absolutely beautiful and I was thrilled to be included. During the opening for EWATS I also helped Nancy Vorm give a demonstration of how encaustic painting was done and the crowd really enjoyed seeing the process. Seeing encaustic painting in action definitely gives people a better appreciation for how it is done. Scroll on down for pics of the opening.

FUSE will be on display at the Kimball Arts Center until June 24th and EWATS will be open until June 31st, so you still have time to check them both out. Join my this Friday for Park City's monthly gallery stroll, which will be the official opening (or in this case, closing) for FUSE.
