Upcoming shows and events

"Rock Falling"
Encaustic Monotype
18" x 12"

This weekend will be my last of the summer outdoor art festivals for this season and now that I have a few under my belt, I am definitely going to apply to more opportunities next spring and summer. The 42nd Annual Evanston Lakeshore Arts Festival is held along the lakefront in Centennial Park, August 2 & 3 from 11am - 6pm. I will be featuring new cityscape paintings along with nature inspired monotypes, (most of the monotypes will be in my portfolio rack). I also have planned for a new booth design and look forward to sharing photographs.

Another opportunity to see some of my new work is at Unbound(ed), An Encaustic Exhibition, in Morpho Gallery, Chicago. Tonight is the opening reception, 6 - 9:30pm and the show runs through the month of August. This year Morpho gallery opened submissions to all national encaustic artists (not just regional) and the quality of work is phenomenal.

I have to admit, on a whim, I decided to submit to Real People - an exhibition of Figurative Work. My inspiration most often comes from land but experimenting with self portraits was a part of my studio practice while I attended graduate school several years ago. The show is sponsored by the Northwest Area Arts Council in the Old Court House Arts Center, Woodstock, IL and runs from August 7 - September 28, 2014.

  1. Love that portrait, Robin. Really amazing effects with the wax and color palette. I hope you don't get rained out this weekend!
