“New Directions: Perhaps dimensional, Perhaps intuitive” watercolors by Elaine Frenett

Inner Door, Encaustic by Elaine Frenett

Encaustic mixed media by Elaine Frenett

This gathering of newer pieces swerves strongly from Elaine’s usual approach. An inner yearning to move into a new way of expressing hatched from the play and process she has so come to love: visual art journaling. With no agenda, the pigment, be it wax or watercolor, was slathered onto the surfaces. And from there whatever whispered to her, she followed.

“It’s like leaving myself behind, and finding myself at the same time,” says Frenett. “Won’t you come see if you can hear the whispers, too?

Come see Elaine’s art upstairs at AAC in her studio–No. 13.

First Friday Art Walk Reception, November 7, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm
