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!
