Corison loft - august 4 to september 1

Group Show: Darlene Engellenner, Kaz Huette and Diane Ruhkala Bell

Darlene Engellenner’s recent work takes on the use of patina copper and encaustic. Engellenner’s encaustic work entails poured wax combined with oil colors to create a sculptural form on canvas. The unusual combination of these two mediums create highly textured surfaces with abstract structures of color and form. Kaz Huette’s furniture designs use wood and concrete, often incorporating inlays of her one-of-a-kind ceramic and glass pieces. Diane Ruhkala Bell constructs her contemporary artwork from found material. She combines paint, bees wax, wire and nails to create “assemblage” pieces. The effect is part painting, part relief sculpture.


Artists’ Reception

Friday, August 8, 5-7pm. This is your chance to meet the artists while enjoying hors d'ouevres and wine.
