Encaustic News Calendar



The work of Jasper Johns has greatly influenced my personal love of encaustic and I love any chance I get to see his work in person (this link is a piece I traveled very far to see..) The show Target Practice at the Seattle Art Museum this summer had many wonderful examples of his ability to consistently master the application and layering of encaustic wax. Don't miss this additional local show of sculpture and prints titled Jasper Johns: Light Bulb at The Henry Art Gallery thru Oct. 25, 2009.




Encaustic Wax, An Ancient Medium Rediscovered is on view in the upper gallery at the Watchung Arts Center in Somerset County, NJ on Wednesday September 9th thru Sept. 29, 2009. The show features 18 artists and is curated by Francesca Azarra.
This piece is by Lisa Pressman.





Tracey Adams is showing her encaustic works "Mindless Inversions" Sept. 5 - Nov. 29, 2009 at Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. I have seen her work many times in Seattle and love her piece titled "Imago 60".

2009 Encaustic Conference Exhibition "Beauty and Its Opposites"

I have returned to Seattle from the 2009 International Encaustic Conference and I wish I could have stayed longer! What a great time we all had. The conference show "Beauty and Its Opposites" was beautifully put together and I was happy to exhibit
my work this year with so many talented artists.


This juried group exhibition features 20 artists from across the US, selected by Nick Capasso, Senior Curator at the DeCordova Museum. Capasso selected the theme Beauty and Its Opposites to challenge participants to go beyond the beauty of the wax. He notes that “Beauty is once again a relevant issue in contemporary art, and it is particularly relevant to encaustic where there is an expectation of beauty,” says Capasso, noting the lush surface and translucence of the medium. “I am personally interested to see how much one might intentionally subvert beauty. How might you make a work not beautiful and why? I’m interested in the dialog between the overtly beautiful and the non-beautiful.”





There are too many wonderful pieces to include here so I am posting a few that left a personal impression on me. You can see photos of my additional paintings in the show here on my studio blog ksl-studio.blogspot.com.

Welcome to The Heated Palette!


Today The Heated Palette is officially online. Thank you for visiting!

I am about to fly out to Boston tonight to attend the Annual Encaustic Painting Conference at the Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts. So many artists have been anxiously waiting for this weekend to arrive. I will be attending the opening of "Beauty and Its Opposites" the juried conference show on Saturday. I have three paintings on exhibit and I am excited to see the many additional encaustic shows this year as well. I will be blogging about the demos, lectures, exhibitions and hope to share plenty of info and photos here when I return. Please feel free to contact me to share information or to ask any questions. I hope this site will promote a new community of artists in Seattle and beyond! You can see the work I am showing and other happenings at my studio blog.
