FLASHPOINTS : Material : Intent : Fused

at Piedmont Arts

Featuring the work of Kristy Deetz, Reni Gower, Jane Nodine, and Daniella Woolf. Enticed by touch, these artists explore a wide range of materials and processes linked through craft and meaning. With a shared focus on encaustic (pigmented hot wax) FLASHPOINTS beautifully underscores where material and intent converse and fuse. Whether a painting, a tapestry, an installation or artist book, the works in this exhibition resonate with a profound tactility echoed through substance, image and idea. The viewer is invited to explore an immersive sensory-filled experience that is defined by more than just wax. FLASHPOINTS is curated by artist and retired Virginia Commonwealth University Professor Reni Gower.
