I had a lovely evening mingling with encaustic artists at the Wax(inâ€™) Blue exhibit.
It was naturally a gathering of FUSEDChicago members, but also artists who had come in from as far as Michigan to peruse this exhibit.
As the title indicates, the theme was blue, and it was great to see the spectrum of blue on display.
My Dragonflies were in lovely company.
Kimberly Fuller’s Jewelry intrigued me.
Sculptural pieces give encaustic wonderful dimension.
Robin Samiljan, Sue Cahill, Nikkole Huss,Â Laura LaRue,
Alicia Forestall-Boehm, Valerie McCune, Jenny Learner, Karen Tichy, Vicki Reed
This Lumen print technique on silk by Vicki Reed is intriguing.
I also enjoyed seeing a few figurative pieces in this exhibit, since truly painting in wax is a challenge I have not mastered.
Discussing techniques was illuminating.
Colors ranged from bright to subdued.
Since it was at Morpho Gallery, I wore my Morpho pendant, with a blue dress of course.
The show is up from August 10th-31st with walk-in hours Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 6 p.m., or by appointment. Morpho Gallery is located at 5216 North Damen, Chicago.
I just submitted to another show, so we’ll see if the momentum keeps going!
