Molten art on display at Davis Arts Center

By From page A9 | July 30, 2014

Members of the Sierra Wax Artists — the Sacramento chapter of International Encaustic Artists — will display their “Wax On” group exhibit from Aug. 6 to Sept. 5 at the Davis Arts Center, 1919 F St. There is a free public open house from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8.
The exhibit features the ancient process of working with bee’s wax and tree resin in a molten state. This translucent — and aromatic — medium dates back to 1st century Rome and is typically heated, transferred to wood panels, and then sculptured, textured or combined with other materials to create unique works of great depth and complexity.

Encaustic art is seeing a resurgence today in many fine art forms, including mixed media, sculpture, print-making and many other techniques.

The gallery is open from 9:30 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 9:30 to 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Saturdays.
