Earth View No. 6 | encaustic mixed media

The April 2022 show is installed in Gallery 209 and we’re ready for you to come in to explore all the new artworks! With April being Earth Month, my artwork focuses on Earth Views, as I imagine it might look if I were standing on the moon. Like the six Earth Views in this series, I imagine we all go through various life phases. Sometime we need to be in shadow space, while other time we need to be in the full light. In between, we spend most of the time in various stages of revelation or concealment.

My artwork in the gallery also includes a series of 5 mini-encaustic paintings of black Kintsugi vases, with gold in the seams of the repaired glass. In exploring the idea of life’s ups and downs, I learned that Kintsugi is a process of mending broken vases with a material including a precious material, such as gold. The carefully repaired pieces are re-created and what had been broken is transformed into something of beauty, rather than being unseemly.

The art exhibit opening reception is Saturday, April 2nd, from 11 AM – 3 PM. Stop by to see all of the beautiful art on display in the gallery from our 19 local artists, as well as meet and see the work of the many other diverse artists throughout the Artists & Makers Complex!* This show ends Tuesday, May 2nd.
