Wildlife in Wax by Derek Brennan 

When: Fri., July 7 2017
Local artist Derek Brennan’s vibrant paintings of wildlife are created utilized a technique known as encaustic wax painting, a process of painting with hot wax and oil paints. Often incorporating elements of collage, Brennan prefers the imperfections of painting on wood to the smoothness of paper or canvas. Balancing realism with abstraction, Brennan depicts his subjects with vibrant energy, often capturing the essence of the animals better than any camera. An exhibition of Brennan’s paintings opens with a reception from 5 to 9 tonight. Tomorrow, Loftworks hosts an artist talk and demonstration at 1 p.m. During the talk, Brennan will discuss his process, theme and personal journey. Wildlife in Wax remains on view through Sunday, July 23. Throughout the exhibition, Brennan will give visitors insight into the encaustic process by painting live in the gallery during open studios hours: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m. The exhibition and all related events are free and open to the public.
