Wax(in’) Blue, an August exhibit

I’m thrilled to have 2 pieces in the Wax(in’) Blue exhibit at Morpho Gallery. The exhibit opens on Saturday (August 10) with the opening reception from 6 to 9:30 pm at 5216 North Damen, Chicago.

Wax(in’) Blue is a juried exhibition featuring work from 25 encaustic artists from around the Midwest. The title refers to the color blue and all of its meanings. Each artist has approached this theme in their own way, resulting in an exhibition filled with different styles, techniques and new takes on the encaustic medium.


The show is up from August 10th-31st with walk-in hours Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 6 p.m., or by appointment.
Artists include:

Ahavani Mullen, Bobbette Rose, Candace Meyers,
Donna Zarbin-Byrne, Jenny Learner, Karen Tichy,
Kathy Roman, Laura LaRue, Maike van Wijk,
Nikkole Huss, Robin Samiljan,  Valerie McCune,
Yvonne Prisble,  Alicia Forestall-Boehm,  Brad Hook,
Carol Hamilton,  Jacqueline Drake,  Jessica Behan,
Kari Hall,  Kimberly Fuller,  Lynda Cole,
Mary J O’Hearn,  Patricia Lagger,  Sue Cahill,  Vicki Reed

Last year’s Hot Wax in the City was a fun exhibit, at which these photos were taken, and I look forward what this encaustic show has in store.


Morpho Gallery prides itself on seeking talented artists who are on the cusp of being discovered by the mainstream art community. They invite local artists to exhibit their work in a creative and non-competitive atmosphere, where artistic experimentation and development are encouraged. By creating a blank palette inside the gallery, Morpho offers infinite possibilities for an array of colors, textures and media to come together.
