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 during Summer 2007. The exhibition will run from December 1st, 2007 through January 19th, 2008.

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. Six artists, who represent a diverse cross-section of the United States, participated, including Lynda Cole from Ann Arbor, MI; Julia Dzikiewicz from Alexandria, VA; Cari Hernandez from San Anselmo, CA; Lissa Rankin from San Diego, CA; Ruth Sack from Cheshire, CT; and Karen Zimmerman from Tucson, AZ. The Ahead of the Buzz workshop was led by a series of prominant artists, writers and critics, including Donna Sharrett, Timothy MacDowell, Heather Hutchison, Gail Gregg and Beth E. Wilson.
