In the Gallery at R&F:
Ahead of the Buzz, a group exhibition comprised of works that were generated during, and as a result of, an advanced workshop for encaustic painters which occured at R&F Handmade Paints over the summer. The exhibition will run from December 6th, 2008 through January 17th, 2009.
The “Ahead of the Buzz” workshop was juried from a pool of applicants who proposed projects which they would work on independently at R&F Handmade Paints, while interacting with a series of visiting master artists and critics who led demonstrations and discussions, and helped the group focus on ways of taking their work to the next level. Five artists, who represent a diverse cross-section of the United States, participated, including Ginger Smith from White Lake, NY; Karen Levine from Kingston, NY; Michal Sagar from Minneapolis, MN, Martha Burgess from New York, NY, and Gabrielle Zane from Wilimantic, CT. The Ahead of the Buzz workshop was led by a series of prominant artists, including Richard Purdy, Carl Van Brunt, Barbara Ellmann, Grimanesa Amoros, and Cindy Stockton Moore.
