by Stephanie Gordon

Stephanie Gordon’s show, “Root & Branch: Encaustic Paintings” will be featured in the Gallery at The Space On Main for the month of November. The opening reception will be during Midnight Madness on November 2, 2018 from 5:00–7:00pm.

Stephanie Gordon has been an artist and craftsperson her whole life. She attended the University of Michigan (BFA cum laude). She spent her junior year in Aix-en-Provence, France studying French culture and art.

Stephanie has taught art to all ages, from kindergarten to adult. She taught art at Hanover High School for 18 years before retiring. She currently teaches community art classes for adults and teens. She exhibits work locally and regionally. Her artwork is in many private collections from one coast to the other

The artworks in this exhibit are mixed media encaustic paintings. Encaustic painting is a very ancient and beautiful method of creating luminous art from pigmented molten waxes called encaustics. Encaustics have been used for painting since at least the 1st century BCE in Egypt. The word encaustic comes from the Greek word “enkaustikos”, meaning “to burn in”. Each layer of melted wax must be fused to the one underneath with heat. Encaustics are well suited for mixed media work as objects and other materials can be embedded in the wax.
