For the month of November, Balefire Goods welcomes encaustic painter Michele Messenger with a show of her engaging work.
Michele Messenger is a Denver based artist, graphic designer, and volunteer with the Art Students League of Denver. Encaustic paintings are created with mixed media, colored pigments, and layers of beeswax and she leverages this approach beautifully to create modern pieces with amazing depth.
In conjunction with the Colorado Metalsmithing Conference (CoMA) in July, we will be hosting a show highlighting metal arts from the members of CoMA and the presenters at the conference. Leading up to that exhibit we asked a few of the conference presenters more about their work and process and will be sharing their responses and images of the work we will be showcasing. Last in this series of posts is Charles Lewton-Brain.
