New work by John CampbellLindsey Kocur and Mike Ryczek

Opening Reception: Saturday January 164-6 pm

13FOREST Gallery has a 500 square-foot exhibition space with movable walls that make it versatile. For Construct, Belief and Nostalgia we're calling playful attention to the gallery environment by setting up the exhibition space as three "rooms" that allow the artists to develop separate themes. Read More

Waxing Poetic
Come spend the afternoon with encaustic artist Amy Keller onSaturday, February 64-6 pm. Amy creates mixed media work consisting of paper-cut drawings collaged within layers of wax which accentuates the depth that is characteristic of encaustic. Oil stick, silver leaf, metallic powder and pigments are also incorporated into her work. Amy has also devised a technique that renders her original works in miniature but retains their depth by adding a final layer of wax to 4" x 4" prints mounted on wood panels.
