West Travels East Exhibit opening Sept. 29th at 7PM!

EastMeetsWest12The Josephy Center for Arts and Culture is proud to present an encaustic art exhibit, West Travels East. Exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, September 29 at 7pm, doors open at 6:30 and runs through November 1st. The event is free but donations are welcome. There will be light appetizers and a no-host bar with beer and wine. 
The exhibit features encaustic art by four Portland, OR based artists; Jef Gunn, Kirk Weller, Robert Procter, and Andrea Schwartz-Feit. Curator Robert Procter approached the Josephy Center with the idea of bringing Western Oregon artists to Eastern Oregon in hopes of giving Portland artists a chance to experience Eastern Oregon and a way for Eastern Oregon to appreciate Portland encaustic artists. 
Encaustic painting is the technique of mixing pigments with heated wax, which is then applied to various, chosen surfaces. Invented by the Greeks, dating back over two millennia ago, the colors can end up to be quite luminous, and the possibility for translucency and layering of detail rather marvelous.
