I will be speaking at a forum on encaustic painting at Virginia Commonwealth University on October 22nd. The title of my talk is “Ancient Encaustic Painters.” The forum is part of The Divas and Iron Chefs of Encaustic, an encaustic extravaganza organized by Reni Gower, professor of art at VCU.
The event includes simultaneous demonstrations by 6 encaustic painters displaying their individual techniques, an exhibit of paintings by the featured artists as well as the forum in which the artists discuss the intertwining of their concepts with encaustic. Along with Reni and me, the participants are Kristy Deetz from DePere WI, Peter Dykhuis from Bedford, Nova Scotia, Lorraine Glessner Philadelphia, PA, Cheryl Goldsleger from Athens, GA, Jeff Hirst from Minneapolis, MN, and Tim McDowell from West Mystic, CT.
