New Directions: May 24

"The Senator" by Peggy Dean, 16" x 20"

"Night Time in the City" by Brenda Bisiker, 13.5" x 17.5"

The exhibit explores two Heliconian artists’ immersion in new medium inspired by their own individual muses. Both have been working towards the show at Hag Atelier in the Distillery District with artist Heather Gentleman.

Brenda Bisiker has been working in oil glazing inspired by her muse, granddaughter Matlida. Her Encaustic work in non-objective abstraction is derivative of the medium’s tactile qualities.

Peggy Dean’s exploration of oil glazing is driven by her muse: her fascination with the North and passion for Polar Bears.
