Patricia’s Wellness Arts Cafe hosts an exhibit of encaustic wax paintings by Lisa Renee Wilson.
“Lisa Renee Wilson is an awareness artist who believes in blurring the lines between studio art and the art of everyday living. After obtaining a degree in psychology from Indiana University in 1999, Lisa went on to study wellness, yoga, and meditation. She noticed that each path, while interesting, seemed segregated from her experience of day-to-day life. Her desire to more deeply experience the spirituality of the mundane and to creatively share what she was learning led her to the arts. As a self-declared awareness artist, Lisa’s primary desire is to be mindfully aware and in creative play with the wonders of this moment. Through ongoing play with mixed media, she discovered encaustic (hot wax painting) in 2011. While she continues to create using a variety of materials, she finds herself often returning to encaustic art. This form of expression not only allows for the integration of many of the other mediums into one spirited piece, but also invites the artist and viewer into a dance with the playful nature of wax and alluring translucency.”
Gallery is open Tuesday – Friday, 1 pm – 6 pm, Saturday, noon – 5 pm, and Sunday, 1 pm – 4 pm. Exhibit runs until September 30.
