Artists will mind their beeswax at encaustic painting exhibition
The "Hot! Hot! Hot!" exhibition will be on display Tuesday, July 19, through Thursday, Aug. 18, at the Bosque Gallery.
The pieces in the exhibit involve using a melted mixture of beeswax, damar resin and pigment to paint a variety of surfaces from wood to canvas. The medium highlighted in this summer exhibition is encaustic, which is one of the oldest, time-tested methods of painting.
Curating this exhibition is Lone Star College-CyFair’s (LSC-CyFair) art instructor Gwen Plunkett, who specializes in encaustic painting. Guests can learn more about the artists and encaustic painting at the opening reception, set for 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20.
The Bosque Gallery is located in the Center for the Arts building of LSC-CyFair, located at 9191 Barker Cypress. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
