Melting the Snow for Water Exhibit January 7 – February 4 Henderson Fine Arts Center Gallery
The show features the encaustic art of Michael Billie and stone sculptures of Eddy Shorty. Billie’s encaustic paintings entail working with bees wax mixed with damar resin and pigment. He often utilizes colored wax that he has made, as well as a variety of photography images, pigments and other materials that he’s collected from his travels around the world. Shorty begins his projects by sketching a stone from different angles. In time, he sees a form in the stone, and then works to create the images – often animals or spirit beings from Navajo mythology.
An opening reception will be held Friday, January 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. Information: Cindy McNealy, 505-566-3464. www.michaelbillie.com
