Kaylee Dalton: Closing Reception + Encaustic Demo

Artist Kaylee Dalton will demonstrate the art of hot pigmented wax (Encaustic) on the closing day of her exhibition Radicle Traces, Saturday April 21 – 3 pm.

Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will host artist Kaylee Dalton on Saturday April 2, 1 – 3 pm as she demonstrates the art of hot pigmented wax (Encaustic).  Visitors are invited to engage with the artist as she shares her techniques on the closing day of her exhibition Radicle Traces.  Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited.

“Radicle” refers to the part of a plant embryo that develops into the primary root.  Appropriate for this time of year, Dalton’s works are whimsical interpretations of the garden landscape with a focus on “the ever longed for spring season and its perpetual fascination of new growth.” Bulbs, seeds, and blooms, both above and beneath the soil, have all found a home in her recent work now hanging in GFAF Gallery. Exploiting the combination of encaustic and other materials, Dalton’s thick paintings, reflect the various surfaces often found in nature.

Please join Mrs. Dalton and the Gordy staff for an afternoon of conversation and inspiration. We look forward to sharing the afternoon with you.

“Radicle” refers to the part of a plant embryo that develops into the primary root. Appropriate for March, Dalton’s works are whimsical interpretations of the garden landscape with a focus on “the ever longed for spring season and its perpetual fascination of new growth.” Bulbs, seeds, and blooms, both above and beneath the soil, have all found a home in her most recent work. Exploiting the rare combination of hot pigmented wax called Encaustic with water and oil-based paints, Dalton’s thick paintings, reflect the various surfaces often found in nature.

Dalton received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Ball State University in 2008. She was the 2006 recipient of the Watercolor Society of Indiana scholarship. While attending Ball State University, she received five painting awards, including three purchase awards. Dalton studied with well-known painter Darby Bannard at the University of Miami, Florida. She has shown in over 25 group exhibits including Art Basel Miami. She is a member of the Northern Indiana Artists and recently received the Carolyn Jagodits Memorial Award at their latest exhibition.
