Wondrous Wax: Sierra Wax Artists

The Crocker is proud to present a unique selection of encaustic and cold wax work provided by the members of the Sierra Wax Artists group. Encaustic is the ancient and luminous fine art of painting or sculpting with layer upon layer of molten bees wax and resin while cold wax uses oils and cold wax medium to create mystical, matte films of color and depth. The group includes artists from all over Northern and Central California and promises to be a most beautiful and unique display of contemporary work.

Linda Nunes, encaustic and mixed media artist, that serves on the board in charge of events; along with Sara Post, Cold Wax Artist from Davis.
