I’ll be participating in a group show at the Fremont Art Walk opening Fri, June 2, from 6-9 pm (but I will not be in attendance). The opening night reception will be Friday, June 2, from 6-9 pm at Johnston Architects, 100 NE Northlake Way, Suite 200, Seattle WA 98105, 206.523.6150. This group show includes work from 6 emerging Northwest women encaustic artists, all exploring the medium with images that reinforce the importance of place and identity. Using encaustic medium (a combination of beeswax & resin), photography, mixed media, oil stick and cold wax, each artist brings a unique perspective to what the process can offer. The exhibition will be up for 2 months, from June 2 through end of July. Exhibiting artists include: Brynn Blanchard, Angela Kelly, Eliaichi Kimaro, Sean Phelan, and Ellen Zrimsek. The location is open during regular business hours M-F outside of Fremont Art Walk.
