Beneath the Surface
April 2 - May 28
Opening reception, Friday, April 1, 5:30-7:30 pm
Artist talk, Thursday, April 14, 6:30 pm
This special exhibition features work from New England Wax (N.E.W.), a regional association of artists who work in encaustic, a beeswax-based painting medium. Juried by Ron Crusan, Executive Director and Curator of the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, the exhibition includes 103 works by twenty-five artists representing all six of the New England states. For the artists of N.E.W. the techniques and processes of layering, embedding, incising, and working in relief are key elements in their artistic toolkits. The theme of "Beneath the Surface" serves as a uniting concept that allows the visitor to see into each of the artists' works and discover all that lies beneath.
