LRAC Solo Gallery Features Vicky Radel through November, Public Artist Reception October 20, 5 – 6:30 pm
FERGUS FALLS, MINN, September 25, 2015 – Vicky Radel’s encaustic paintings will be featured in Lake Region Art Council’s Solo Gallery during the months of October and November, 2015.
With the installation of an exhaust system to Radel’s studio through funding from an LRAC Artist Quick Start Grant, she was able to create encaustic paintings in a safe, well ventilated environment. The heated wax and resins give a rich optical effect to the pigments. “It wasn’t until I took classes in encaustic painting that I felt I had found ‘my’ medium. I was finally able to achieve the look and the feel I had been looking for, and I was thrilled!”
