August 2015 (Chicago) – Morpho Gallery is pleased to welcome back jurors Kathy Blankley Roman and Kathleen Waterloo for their fourth juried encaustic exhibition. After the success of past years’ exhibitions, Hot Wax in the City and Wax(in’) Blue, Unbound(ed), Waterloo and Roman return to present “Edges.”
“Edges” is a juried exhibition featuring work from encaustic artists from around the country. The title refers to the term “Edge” and all of its meanings. Each artist has approached this theme in their own way, resulting in an exhibition filled with different styles, techniques and new takes on this ancient medium. This years submissions offer a wide variety of techniques and styles.
