Once an obsolete technique, encaustic (hot wax) art is finding new life as a mainstream art medium, and an East Tennessee State University art gallery is making an exhibition of these works available for art patrons to view.
“RADIANT: Contemporary Encaustic” is on display at Slocumb Galleries through Sept. 20.
Two free public lectures will be held in conjunction with “RADIANT: Contemporary Encaustic.”
In the first, encaustic artist Jane Allen Nodine will speak during the exhibit reception, which will be held Thursday, Sept. 12, from 5:30-7 p.m. Nodine will also present a demonstration for ETSU art students on Friday, Sept. 13.
In the second lecture, Catherine Murray, chair of the ETSU Department of Art and Design and an encaustic artist, will discuss encaustic as an art form on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. at Slocumb Galleries.
New fall semester hours for Slocumb Galleries, located in Ball Hall, are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday, with extended hours for receptions and scheduled tours.
