FLASHPOINTS: Material / Intent / Fused
Ongoing - 2019

Enticed by touch, the artists in FLASHPOINTS: Material / Intent / Fused explore a wide range of materials and processes linked through craft and meaning. With a shared focus on encaustic (pigmented hot wax) FLASHPOINTS beautifully underscores where material and intent converse and fuse. Whether a painting, a tapestry, an installation or artist book, the works in this exhibition resonate with a profound tactility echoed through substance, image and idea. The viewer is invited to explore an immersive sensory-filled experience that is defined by more than just wax. FLASHPOINTS celebrates the art of making across a wide interdisciplinary matrix that rewards, inspires, and soothes.
