Although their names are nearly the same, our August artists could not be more different: Victoria’s encaustic paintings are luminous landscapes made from layers of beeswax – a technique that began with the Greeks and Romans and now requires a blowtorch. Her work employs soothing, subtle colors and has a tactile quality that invites contemplation. In contrast, Vicki is a contemporary realist who makes outspoken oils. Her paintings are bright blasts of color that are anything but subtle.
Come by on Friday to see ancient meet modern and bright meet subdued. We doubt you’ll be disappointed.
