Tag Archives: Winthrop Gallery

Both The Winthrop Gallery and the Confluence Gallery hung new shows this week and I have new work in each show.

At The Winthrop Gallery, the theme is Methow Wonderland. I brought in two pieces showing Alpenglow on mountains that I can see from my house. One of my favorite things is to watch the sunlight spread over the snow-covered mountains as I have my coffee in the morning. Today is overcast so that won’t happen.


The Winthrop Gallery is open from 10:00 til 5:00 Thursday through Monday.


At The Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Caryl Campbell curated a show titled Weathering Change. I had this in mind while I was traveling through Utah in November.

The Confluence is open Wednesday through Friday from 10:00 til 5:00, and on Saturday from 10:00 til 3:00. There will be a reception tomorrow, Saturday the 12th from 5:00 til 7:00 pm.

Lately I’ve been working on some new photo encaustics and have been pretty happy with the results. What are photo encaustics? They are a combination of printed photos, beeswax, texture and pigments – a mixed-media alternative photo process. It’s a very tactile process compared to the many hours that I spend behind the computer processing digital files. I quite enjoy it. I have been using wood substrates – mostly lumber scraps and some cradled boards too. It’s ¬†time consuming and fraught with all sorts of potential results and they are not always good. I have melted and scraped much wax off of my boards. And melted and brushed some more. The end results are often unexpected but always interesting. You can see some of these hanging at the Winthrop Gallery.
