FLASHPOINTS: Material / Intent / Fused

Featuring the work of

Kristy Deetz, Reni Gower, Jane Nodine, and Daniella Woolf

Enticed by touch,

these artists explore a wide range of materials and processes

linked through craft and meaning. 

With a shared focus on encaustic (pigmented hot wax)

FLASHPOINTS beautifully underscores where material and intent converse and fuse.

Whether a painting, a tapestry, an installation or artist book,

the works in this exhibition resonate

with a profound tactility echoed through substance, image and idea.

The viewer is invited to explore an immersive sensory-filled experience

that is defined by more than just wax.

FLASHPOINTS celebrates the art of making across a wide interdisciplinary matrix.

— Reni Gower, Curator
