The Working in Wax Exhibit at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA — in which I have three paintings displayed — continues through June 21, 2009, so you can still catch it if you are in the Northern California area.  There’s a Culture + Cocktails Reception for “Working in Wax” on June 18, 6:00—8:00 p.m.

I was not able to make it to the show, but two other artists in the show have posted pictures of the opening of this gorgeous and amazing art exhibit.

Allyson Sanburn Malek posted these photos of the May 6, 2009 Working in Wax opening (posted on Facebook – you must belong to Facebook to view).

Or you can view photos of the opening reception by Margo Mullen at her blog,

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.”

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!
