Length x Width x Depth at Conrad Wilde Gallery

For the last eleven years Conrad Wilde Gallery in Tucson, Arizona has hosted an annual exhibition devoted to works created from encaustic. This years Encaustic Invitational, Length x Width x Depth was terrific. Miles Conrad always does a great job of finding artists with unique voices, telling unique visual stories and he chooses works that are often surprising and engagingly tactile. And this years Invitational was no exception.

Barbara Ellmann: An Open Book 2 at the Marks Art Center

I had the great pleasure of seeing Barbara Ellmann’s dynamic exhibition, An Open Book 2, at the Walter N. Marks Center for the Arts in Palm Desert, California last month. The exhibition, which ran from February 4 to March 11, was partially funded by the McCallum Theatre Institute’s Aesthetic Education Program, produced in conjunction with the Marks Art Center at the College of the Desert and was beautifully curated by Sophia Marisa Lucas. The Marks always presents terrifically exciting, innovative shows and I am continually impressed by the quality of their curatorial focus. An Open Book 2 was no exception.
