Steve Barber

Hot and Cold:
Encaustic Paintings and Scratchings by
Steve Barber, Cat Crotchett, and Christine Towner
June 4 through July 12 Reception June 13
5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Jansma Gallery at NCCA-Artsplace, 13 E. Main St., Fremont. 231-924-4022.
Steve Barber teaches at Central Michigan University and uses a technique of working with wax as a cold medium applied over colored grounds, scratching through the surface with pencil, engraving an image and applying more layers of color to the remaining wax surface. This series was inspired by Steve’s time spent in New Zealand with the indigenous Maori people.

Cat Crotchett

Cat Crotchett

Cat Crotchett lives and works in Kalamazoo sharing her passion for encaustic all over the world by teaching workshops in Indonesia, New England, Chicago, and locally for Western Michigan University and the KIA. Her modular works are inspired by her time spent working in Indonesia where she shifted the focus of her work to patterns.
Christine Towner describes her encaustic painting as a complex, colorful journey into nature. As an abstract expressionist she uses the intuitive side of representing nature by choosing the ancient medium of encaustic wax and oil paint.
