Rochester Artist: Beth Sievers
If you have never met Beth Sievers, a local encaustic artist - you should. Her art is a remarkable array of texture and colors on unique mediums. The process of encaustic art is fascinating to watch. Encaustic art is defined as a paint made from pigment mixed with melted beeswax and resin and after application fixed by heat. I was excited to have Beth in the studio to discuss her art work after eyeing it at some events I had attended.
Here's an R-Town video that showcases the process of encaustic art with some background about Beth's work:
If you'd like to see some of Beth's artwork in person, she currently has them for viewing at Rochester Civic Theatre, the exhibit is entitled "Discarded Expanded". You are invited to her Art reception that will be held this Wednesday, June 21st from 6-7:30 pm in the lobby.
And if you are hooked on this encaustic concept, you could learn how to do it yourself. Beth is teaching a class held at Forager tomorrow, Tuesday, June 20th from 7-9pm. Here's the event page: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/painting-with-beeswax-incorporating-collage-tickets-32424957922?aff=eac2
