Reception: Friday, November 7, 7 - 10 p.m.

Artworks Gallery is presenting a two-person exhibit: "Encaustics", with encaustic wax paintings on wood by Alix Hitchcock and Nelida Otero Flatow.

Crow SoulAlix Hitchcock is showing new encaustic wax pieces that contain images from Western tribal symbols, Wyoming nature forms, plus at least one of coastal imagery. Working with pigmented hot wax applied to wooden boards in layers, she achieves a complexity of textures and visual illusions abstracted from reality, resulting in an ambiguity of time, space, and meaning. Ms. Hitchcock teaches drawing at Wake Forest University and was the 1989 Winston-Salem Artist of the Year. She is also showing other encaustic paintings at Hawthorne Gallery in Winston-Salem.

Roman DoorNelida Otero Flatow is showing an intimate group of encaustic paintings incorporating etchings from solarplates. The subject matter evolved from a trip to Italy in 2007 with her daughter, Rebecca.

The opening reception is Friday, November 7 from 7 to 10 pm. It will coincide with the Downtown Arts District Gallery Hop.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
