Wednesday, November 23 | 1 – 2 p.m.
Freeman’s Main Line presents “Contemporary Art Talk: Exploring Encaustic,” with featured artist and InLiquid Artist Member Tremain Smith and curator Lauren Addis.
Smith’s work is about expressing inner realities in the physical form of painting. The lines, shapes and colors become mappings of the unseen as she seeks to visually manifest access to what is internal. The mixed-media technique used is composed of layers of oil glazes, collage, and transparent beeswax. Smith’s work is acclaimed and widely collected. She has four works in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Her work is in corporate and private collections across the country. Alongside her studio practice, Tremain teaches, lectures, and leads workshops.
This event is a part of the group show Contemporary Expressions, which features artwork by InLiquid Artist Members Sandra Benhaim, Lee Lippman, Gail Morrison-Hall, and Tremain Smith. Proceeds from art sales will go toward several charitable organizations, including Art Sphere Inc., a local non-profit that aims to transform lives through art and raises funds for Philadelphia school art programs, and the Jubilee School, which provides an environment where children build upon their wealth of creative, intellectual, social and physical resources as individuals, and as members of a community whose history and culture is the central starting place for their study of the world.
