Three of my encaustic paintings are showing in the “Working in Wax” exhibit at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek California.  The show runs from May 3 through June 21, 2009, with an opening reception on May 6 from 5:00—7:00 p.m., and a Culture + Cocktails Reception on June 18 from 6:00—8:00 p.m.

Eileen P. Goldenberg was the juror for this show. She stated, “Selecting well conceived, beautifully executed, and visually satisfying art works was my vision for this show. I was looking for artists who give us a glimpse into their emotions and lives. Though the focus of this show is the material, what is vital to art is the expression of the artists, and it is their visual language that shines through.”

Find out more about this show, the juror and the artists at the Bedford Gallery website.

The Bedford Gallery is located at:

Walnut Creek, CA 94596


To all my friends, and especially to my California friends, I hope you can make it to this show.  It promises to be a really great exhibit!

  • Well, I'll be there, and I will look out for your work.

    Oops, took me awhile to respond to your comment. Thanks so much for keeping an eye out for my work, and for sending me a link to the photos. Very Cool! Excellent, excellent show, and I'm honored to have been accepted. 🙂

    I stopped by the Bedford Gallery yesterday to see the exhibit. The work was incredible, including yours! The show had a great variety of two dimensional and three dimensional works. It appears that there is no limit to how one can approach using wax in their art. A great show, you should be honored to be hanging in such a terrific venue.

    Thank you for letting me know, Marianne! Next time I'm out that way, I need to stop in at that gallery — it looks amazing (only wish I could see the show in person)! Seeing the pictures from the show, I am impressed at how incredibly diverse encaustic work can be.

    Thanks again!

  • There’s so much to see here. There are hints of aliens and tribal art, and pure playfulness.
