Some calls for art are best for others, as was the case with Morpho Galleryâ€™s latest encaustic showcase.
I had seen the Unbound(ed) call for art, but in spite of my freewheeling summer felt too confined in my work to create a piece for it. So I let the deadline pass, and instead got to enjoy the works of other encaustic artists.
Submissions from all over the country were accepted, and the show is a wonderful showcase of creative techniques and inspiration. Juried by Kathy Blankley Roman and Kathleen WaterlooÂ the showâ€™s title refers to the term “Unbound” and all of its meanings.Â The show opened August 1 and is up through August 30.
Exhibiting artists include:
Carol Hamilton, Norman Soskel, Cheryl Holz, VA de Pintor.
Cat Crotchett, Laura LaRue, Daniel Hurley, Barbara Fredericks Miner, Martha Robinson, Robin Samiljan, Ahavani Mullen, Sandra C. Pence, Karl Kaiser, and Kathy Blankley Roman.
Carol Flaitz, Amy Van Winkle, Barbara Walton, Ginny Krueger, Caitlin Edgar Bielata and Robin Samiljan.
Carol Flaitz, Nicole Prigan, Eileen P. Goldenberg, Jennifer Terpstra, Kathleen Cosgrove, Rodney Thompson, Patricia Lagger and Yvette Kaiser Smith.
I look forward to playing with some of this textural inspiration.
