Reception:  Saturday, March 30 from 6pm to 8pm

Applied Heat is a group exhibition that explores the diverse applications of encaustic.

Featuring Kathleen Anderson, David Evans, Nancy Hacskaylo, Marty Ittner, Katie Dell Kaufman, and Kevin Milstead from Washington Wax Works, and Sharret Rose from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Washington Wax Works is a collective of six encaustic artists working in the Washington, D.C. area. Encaustic is hot wax. The transformative process of encasing, painting, baking, embedding, and collaging elements with this ancient medium is their passion. Each artist interprets using wax with individualized technical expression, exposing viewers to new and uniquely captivating art forms.

Sharret Rose has primarily worked with oil paint and mixed media, but for several years has included encaustic into her practice. For Sharret, the encaustic process enhances the layering, luminosity, and depth of mark making, with the added benefit of a quick drying medium.

This event is free and open to the public. The exhibition runs from March 23 – April 27, 2019
