An exhibit featuring encaustic works by Greg Angus, hosted by the Oak Heights Art Gallery. Opening on Oct. 2nd. Exhibit running until Oct. 28th.
About the Exhibit:
Each painting is made with wax and oil paint on wooden panel. Two different types of wax are melted down and oil paint is added to the liquid wax to create a variety of colours. Layers are built up in specific colour sequences in order to achieve the correct frequency for the base of the painting. The negative areas of the composition are removed down to the panel allowing for a second, multiple layering of colour. This second layering is different from the first and is based on the quality of energy needed within the painting. Over the course of days and weeks this delicate excavation is repeated until the painting is complete.
Due to importance on maintaining social distancing measures for health and safety, if you wish to attend the Greg Angus' Exhibition Opening we strongly encourage you to RSVP through our website so we have an idea of the number of people that will attend to accomodate our limited number of guests. We will only allow a maximum of 12 people inside the gallery at a time with masks, while others can wait in our outdoor area (seated or standing).
