Shows runs October 30–January 6, 2014

An artistic tribute to the endurance and determination of the human spirit following the 2013 Boston Marathon attack.

Art is healing made visible. Where there is darkness, Art can bring beauty, light and celebration.

Nine New England artists working in encaustic use this ancient medium to create a literal or conceptual interpretation of human spirituality, strength and resilience in the wake of hardship, heartbreak and adversity.

One by one we stand strong together.

Co-curator for:

Modern Wax: New Art from Old Beginnings

at Highfield Hall & Gardens (Falmouth, MA)

Exhibition runs from May 18 – July 8, 2014

Artist reception: June 29, 1:00 – 3:00 pm

The exhibition title refers to both the ancient history of encaustic and the extraordinary versatility of this medium, making it the perfect vehicle for modern artistic experimentation, encouraging freewheeling combinations of methods and materials and the blurring of lines between sculpture, painting, photography and printmaking. From the curators’ perspective, a grand historic setting such as Highfield Hall is an intriguing venue for present-day art, quite different from the usual “white box” gallery, and our goal is to create an artistic confrontation between the formal and elegant architectural details of the exhibition space and bold, contemporary encaustic art.

A quick word from the artist:


Encaustic paintings are unique as they are often described as paintings that are rich in depth, texture and luminousity.

People are intrigued with art that incorporates the encaustic medium since it's lush and mysterious surface draws the viewer in for closer inspection.

Today's curiosity and movement towards wax in the art world is in part due to our attraction to its organic properties.

We are ever so fascinated with nature and our place within it.

Warmest Regards,
