‘About Face’ Show Reception

All are invited to join our members in celebrating our new exhibition at South Avenue Arts with a reception on Sunday, January 20th, 1-3pm. The exhibition is on view now and will remain up through 1/29 .

ABOUT FACE:  These two words can simply mean “Pertaining to the face or front of someone or something”. It is also a common expression as in “A complete change of opinion or policy; or a turn made as to face the opposite direction.

Either way this theme is taken, we know artists have such distinct ways of representing the same underlying theme within their works that we can expect to see a varied array of art and we will be able to compare the methods and journeys artists use to convey the same underlying theme.  The artworks that are inspired by “About Face” may prove to comment on our turbulent times or give us cause to turn in the opposite, more introspective direction.

A special ‘THANK YOU’ to our wonderful host, South Avenue Arts!

Of course you can also come in to view the show at South Avenue Arts anytime during their regular business hours.

Recap-Encaustic Demonstration With Artist Francesca Azzara

On Sunday, November 18, we had a fascinating demonstration of the encaustic painting process by our very own WAA board member, Francesca Azarra.

Francesca is well known both as an artist and as an educator, and both traits can across powerfully in this 2-hour demonstration of the history, tools, supplies, and techniques of the medium.

Perhaps, though, the take-away for the 26 event attendees at South Avenue Arts was the endless experimentation and flexibility that the medium permits.

To find out more about Francesca, and to see video from this demonstration, please visit Francesca’s website, Instagram, and Youtube.
