From an Arts Council of Southeast Missouri press release
Saturday, June 7th, from 1 to 3 p.m., the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri invites you to attend the Saturday Social, which includes an artist lecture and demonstration by local artist Candice Eira Hoffman Cramer.
Cramer will discuss the themes of her work, including her exploration of the connections between biological processes and aspects of the human condition. The demonstration will feature her self-taught signature medium: encaustic (hot wax) painting.
Cramer will have examples on-hand of encaustic paintings in different stages of the process as well as tips on aspects including selecting materials, layering drawings into wax, and adding texture.
Please be aware that due to the process there may be some fumes that could cause minor irritation to sensitive eyes and noses.
The Arts Council’s gallery is also open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 am to 4 pm. The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri is located at 32 North Main St. in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
All ages are encouraged to attend. If you have any questions feel free to give the Arts Council a call at 573-334-9233.
