San Miguel's first encaustic group show.
I am pleased with the diversity of art that makes up this first all encaustic show in San Miguel.
It was worth all the work of clearing out my studio, including the six work stations for the workshops, paintings the walls, it took several coats of paint to cover the spills, and drilling into the concrete wall to hang the art.
After I hung the work of the 22 participating artists, I was reminded of the uniqueness of the encaustic medium. No two artists work the same. Although each of them have taken at least one workshop with me, they incorporated the technique into their own styles.
We were blessed with live music through out the event and I believe that more than 150 people attended.
Here are some photos of before the crowd and after.
