Waxing Well: Encaustic Painting at the Wenniger Gallery



This is Beach 5. It is encaustic wax on cradled panel, 12" x 12" x 2" by Lynda Cole.

The Wenniger Gallery in Rockport, MA will be showing the work of three painters who work in wax. The three painters are Lynda Cole, Chris McCauley and Mari Marks Fleming. This exhibit will be up during the Second Annual Encaustic Conference being held at the Montserrat School of Art in the next door town of Beverly, MA . The exhibit at the Wenniger Gallery runs from June 7 - July 8. There will be an opening celebration with music, refreshments and the artists on Sunday, June 8, 4 - 7pm.

Lynda Cole and Chris McCauley will both be working, in different styles, from the same photographs taken at Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester, MA during the First Encasutic Conference in 2007.

I haven't visited for awhile.

Your work looks wonderful! I must make myself try and work with a limited palette sometime....yikes, it is so difficult.

There is so much movement and life to your work.

I would have loved to have gotten up to the conference. Life is just getting in the way. Congrats on the show!!

It was great to meet you at the Montserret conference in Boston. This piece moves me like no other encaustic piece ever has. I absolutely love it. I wish I could of made it out to the reception at the Wenniger Gallery but wow the traffic in Rockport was incredible. Hope to see you again next year!
