It has been many years now........but the inspiration, lessons and pure enthusiasm for drawing that I received in art school with artist and Professor Dale Leys has stayed with me and his influence is noted on my studio walls from his past show cards, small hand drawn portraits, and many parts and pieces of natural objects that look like bones and fossils. I can see how my love of surface and layering....... is and has always been part of his drawing style that you will be able to see in the following video of Dale working in his studio. The studio is exactly as I remember it and maybe Bob Dylan is still on the play list as well. His early recognition of my desire to make art my life long pursuit was critical at a time when a young artist could easily choose other paths.

The Art House Gallery in Atlanta has launched another world wide community art exhibition. The idea for this one is to make a visual encyclopedia on five mini canvases, each of which are interpretations of randomly given words to each artist participating. The Canvas Project - Volume 2 will be exhibiting soon at the Atrium Gallery in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport from July 31 - September 4, 2009 and then opens at the Art House Gallery on September 25, 2009. A book titled "The Art House Encyclopedia VOL. 1" will be available July 31st for $20 at the Art House Gallery website.

The show will be at the 301 Gallery June 5 - July 3, 2009 in conjunction with the Annual Encaustic Conference at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. I have been going to this conference since it started and it is now a wonderful international event. It was founded and directed by artist, curator and author Joanne Mattera who continues to invite speakers, guest panelists, and visiting artists that discuss critical relevant issues for those of us who are engaged in the multifaceted properties of encaustic paint every day. Joanne has a wonderful art blog as well addressing an array of contemporary issues, what's hot in the galleries, and her new"Marketing Mondays".
The Conference is June 5-7, 2009 with post workshops through June 1oth. A partial line up this year includes:
The conservators on the panel have worked with encaustic objects and paintings--including ancient Fayum portraits, waxen murals, wax sculptures, and contemporary paintings.
See you there!

Last month I met up with Linda here in Seattle at my studio. She created this studio video and featured it on her blog. Check that out here. Thanks Linda!!

We also met with local artist Ted Loomis, an encaustic painter and friend we met at the conference, to hear a lecture and see the work of Betsy Eby. Her exhibition Abundance was showing at Winston Wachter Fine Art here in Seattle. It was a nice opportunity to meet Betsy and see her beautiful work!
