In September I was invited by three encaustic artists to join them for an exhibition at Cygnet’s Lovett Gallery. The wall accommodating our works was only 6 metres long, so our artworks needed to be carefully considered. I decided on one large and a couple of medium pieces and the several smaller works. Each artist had a very different style yet, despite the intimate space it all came together well.
Two of my encaustic works, including the largest piece , ‘The Long Road North’ sold. The second work made it’s way to the USA with its new owner. During the two week period, there was a steady stream of questions about the molten wax process and interest expressed in future workshops.
The ‘Waxing On’ exhibition had barely ended and I received a call inviting me to participate in the Images of Tasmania 21 exhibition. Time to take a break from encaustics and begin putting together a dozen assemblage works for December. Never a dull moment, but always fun and challenging!
