Every spring we produce an exhibit that relates to ecological issues. This year we focused on the concern of Colony Collapse Disorder, the serious threat to one of the most important members of the food chain and global ecosystem: BEES. A personal interest of the curator and executive director of City Lights Gallery is the ancient medium of encaustic art. The base ingredient is BEESwax. This painting technique was nearly loss due to the labor intensive process then reintroduced to the art world due in part to electric appliances that made the wax paint easier to heat and fuse. Notable artists, Diego Rivera and Jasper Johns were some more recent pioneers of the . medium This exhibit is a real WOW needing to be seen in person!
