Coming Soon To A Conference Near You

Well, it will be near you if you are in Provincetown, at least. Yes, The Conference is nearly here - it begins officially on Friday, June 1st, at the Provincetown Inn in Provincetown, Massachusetts. But some of us will be going early and staying late. I'm one of the fortunate ones. I leave tomorrow morning and hope that I'll be driving AGAINST traffic.

Lisa Barthelson, The End, Family Debris Series, 24" x 24", encaustic and found objects on panel

But just to tantalize you, here are three images of work by artists who will be featured in my talk, Wax + Bricolage, to be given on Friday morning, June 1st, at 11:00.

Susan Lasch Krevitt, a detail of Blossom, 2012, encaustic with found and invented objects on panel

My talk will present work by 15 artists who work in bricolage. There are some fabulous pieces that are bound to captivate and raise interest in bricolage to incredible heights. Bricolage may become The Next Big Thing.

Nancy Youdelman, Wrapped Baby #1, 2009, encaustic with baby shoe and other materials

As you can see, the work presents encaustic works that look quite different from the norm - or is there any "norm" in how encaustic can be used?

In addition to the talk, I will be teaching three workshops in Wax + Bricolage before and after the conference and expect to post some great student work.

And, there are also all those shows in 15 (or is it 16?) galleries in Provincetown and Truro that are featuring work in encaustic in conjunction with the conference. An action-packed couple of weeks lies ahead!
