Some Artists at the 2013 Encaustic Conference Hotel Fair

The hotel fair is an exciting component of the wonderful annual International Encaustic Conference organized by Joanne Mattera with Cherie Mittenthal of the Castle Hill Center for the Arts. We owe a debt of thanks to Debra Ramsay and Cora Jane Glasser for originally introducing what became an integral participatory way for conferees to show actual examples of their work. Real live work is such a treat these days instead of the flattened digital imagery we've all become so used to. (By the way, these images will all enlarge if you click on them.)

My work in the hallway outside our room
at the Provincetown Inn:
The Black One and The White One

Here they are from the other direction: The White One and The Black One

Work by Binnie Birstein outside our room - what lies beneath: reflect (left) and
what lies beneath: red line (right)

This year Binnie and I decided to bring some larger work to show in conjunction with our joint book: Gesture & Geometry In Material Exploration.

(Still available online for a mere $15. Just click the link in the sidebar to the right of this post.)

We also brought the more typical smaller work, as did most of our peers. Here are some photos I took of 22 artists and their work in their hotel rooms. This number is only about 10 percent of those who attended the conference and nearly everyone showed work at the hotel fair. I'm sorry that I was only able to visit a few of the rooms due to time restrictions and I apologize to those I have not included. Maybe next year!

Thanks for including me! I love seeing the artist and their work. We are so contextual that it helps put the two together. I met so many new faces this year! Can't wait till next year!

Thanks for including me, Nancy. AND thanks for ALL the pictures as there were so many I didn't get a chance to get by to see.

Thanks for posting this Nancy! I didn't get to many of the rooms that were at the same time as ours and missed so many great pieces. At least I got to see them in your post.

Nancy Natale said...

Thanks for your comments, Judy, Cheryl and Tracey! Too bad we couldn't be everywhere at once.

So good of you to take those and post, Nancy. Helped compensate a little my not being there. Dottie
