Announcing an Upcoming, Inspiring Group Exhibition
I’m excited to share the news that one of my pieces, “It can not simply be reduced to black or white,” from my “It’s not just Black or White” series will be in a group exhibition at the Kolbalt Gallery in Provincetown in June! The show, “Alternative Wax: Layers of Facts,” is the first political show associated with the International Encaustic Conference. It offers artist like myself the opportunity to express their views on the current political state in our country through their artwork. Francine D’Olimpio, juror and Kobalt Gallery Director, and Cherie Mittenthal, the Encaustic Conference Director “feel this is the perfect time to seek artists’ perspectives on alternative facts through layers of wax!”
The show promises to be a wonderful and intriguing one. Every submission was accepted for exhibition as every, “single one of them is unique in its interpretation of the theme, with perspectives ranging from humor to horror!” according to the curator.
If you are in Provincetown anytime between June 2nd and June 8th, plan a visit to the Kobalt Gallery!

Exhibition REMINDER: “It’s not all Black or White”
Later this month, my entire “It’s not all Black or White” series will be on exhibit at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts. Inspired by my post-election feelings, “It’s not all Black or White,” is a series that explores the “complex convergence that defines and enhances the richness of the human experience.” Read more about it on my here. And catch a glimpse of the series in progress here.
The show runs from May 12th – May 26th and the Opening Reception is May 12th from 5:00 – 7:00pm. I hope to see you there!
I am thrilled to announce my newest encaustic series; “It’s not just Black or White” on exhibit next month, May 12th – May 26th, at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts, 439 Ashbourne Road, Cheltenham, PA 19012.
About the Series
Like all truisms, this is not a black OR white world. Rather, we live in between those concrete lines. My series explores this “in between.” Within the black and white, the layers that define us are embedded in the work…. the colors of the spectrum converge and merge toward shades of grey, ironically the combination of black and white. We need to explore this complex convergence that defines and enhances the richness of the human experience.
I hope you will join me at the Opening Reception on May 12th from 5:00 – 7:00pm. I’m excited to share my new series with you. In the meantime, if you’d like a sneak peak of the collection in progress, take a look below.
