The Ann Street Gallery proudly presents the exhibition, “Fahrenheit 180: Group Encaustic Exhibition.” In this exhibition, fifteen contemporary artists from across the country and abroad explore the ancient tradition of encaustic painting. Works exhibited range from abstract designs to figurative paintings. Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added and then applied to a variety of surfaces. Early examples of encaustic art date back to Egyptian Fayum mummy portraits 100-300 AD, and later in the 20th century, artists like Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg embraced the medium. More recently, encaustic art has seen resurgence in popularity among contemporary artists as this event exemplifies. Those interested in the ancient medium of encaustic art should not miss this exhibit. Exhibition runs through to Saturday, April 10th, when there will be a closing reception.
Featured artists include: Grimanesa Amoros, Willow Bader, Francisco Benitez, Joy Broom, Kathryn Dettwiller, Sisavanh Houghton, Nash Hyon, Marilyn Jolly, Laura Moriarty, Catherine Nash, Martha Pfanschnidt, Don Porcella, Cindy Stockton-Moore, Kathleen Thompson, and Janise Yntema.
The Ann Street Gallery, located in Newburgh, NY specializes in contemporary emerging and established artists. The gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or by appointment.
