Depth Perception: An Invitational co-curated by Joanne Mattera & Cherie Mittenthal
This exhibition provides an opportunity to integrate sculpture with painting. The title refers not only to three-dimensional work but to the way a two-dimensional surface can be developed to suggest depth, either by perspective on a flat plane or by physically building it into relief. While all the art in the exhibition would be made of encaustic either entirely or on large part, we are committed to presenting the medium in a way that integrates it into the contemporary mainstream. A thematic exhibition such as this would encourage viewers to consider the concept, thereby underscoring the idea that there is no such thing as “encaustic art” but imply art that is made with the medium of encaustic. (JM feel free to edit) the show will have 18 artists participating.

The Space Between Shadow and Light
June 1st- June 9th, opening reception June 1st, 4 - 6pm
Five artists who explore monochrome and the psychological space between shadow and light. Monochrome distills to basic elements of line and shape, foreground and horizon, with references to writing and text. The push/pull of darkness and air, movement and stillness, or edges and planes contributes to a powerful expression of life and breath.

Applying wax to a photograph can exponentially extend the meaning of an image. The texture of the surface and the invitingly sensuous and tactile sheen of the waxes add to the visual and emotional impact of the underlying handmade photographic work. What is revealed or concealed, contextualized or isolated and emphasized or obscured, as well as the ambiguity of foreground vs. background; all are called into play when wax, resin, pigments and other materials are used with photography.
The artists selected for this exhibition display technical mastery in both encaustic and photography and employ both mediums to their maximum expressive capabilities. They also demonstrate a wide variety of techniques and accomplish their artistic goals by utilizing luminescence, texture, translucency, opacity, color and composition effectively.
