Encaustic art has grabbed my heart since I first learned about it through Suze Weinberg.
I now preside over the group that inspired me so in the beginning, and love attending exhibits by my friends.

Morpho Gallery has hosted an encaustic show for four years, and this yearâ€™s Edges exhibit is the best one to date.
There is such a variety of work, and truly edgy ideas and techniques are on display.
It was lovely to peruse the art with fellow FUSEDChicago members and see 11 represented.
There was a variety of textures to examine.

My pieces were well received, especially since I decided to hang them on edge.

I like Alex Wilhite’s textures.
Book covers in wax might not be practical, but do combine two of my loves.
Through a Glass Darkly by Dan Addington
Dan Breslinâ€™s dimensional work certainly has an edge to it!
I had seen Pat Laggerâ€™s pieces during Sarah Kreppâ€™s critique and love how she keeps expanding on her theme.
Melissa Lackman, Pat Lagger and Carol Hamilton
Kelly Mathewsâ€™ eye was part of that critique as well.
The textures achieved are always mesmerizing.
Karl Kaiser has tremendous patience.
The Edges show is up through Labor Day weekend, so check out the posted hours or book an appointment with Morpho Gallery.
