Luminous Layers
Luminous Layers Exploring Contemporary Encaustic The 47th Annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts presents as its cornerstone exhibit Luminous Layers: Exploring Contemporary Encaustic, the most comprehensive exhibit of encaustic paintings and sculpture assembled in the Pacific Northwest. Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting where beeswax, resin and pigment are layered and fused to produce a luminous surface that captures and transforms light. Nationally recognized artists melt, layer, scrape, and sculpt, creating their visions in wax. Lectures, displays, and demonstrations featuring some of these leading artists will explore the techniques of this art form throughout the three-day Festival.
