Name: Water & Form – Clay, Fiber and Encaustic by artist Emily Miller
Date: October 6, 2017 - November 17, 2017
Event Description:
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is thrilled to exhibit Portland, Oregon artist Emily Miller’s work, for a six week exhibition, Water & Form – Clay, Fiber and Encaustic. The exhibition will kick off with a First Friday reception on October 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. and run through November 17, 2018. Ms. Miller’s pieces will be on display at the Art Council’s 510 Museum & ARTspace located at 510 1st Street in Lake Oswego. This exhibition highlights Emily’s diverse background as an artist and her ties to living on or near the Pacific Ocean. Her work explores the visual richness of coastal environments, highlighting water in all forms and all media. The show features one of her specialties, encaustic painting. This technique involves using heated beeswax and pigments, liquid or powder, mixed together and applied to surfaces including canvas and wood. The use of metal tools and special brushes allows this technique to be sculpted, layered, and painted. Emily’s encaustic paintings focus on water forms with its constant cycles of change. Her encaustic technique creates a velvety, luminous surface with color and form being the focal point, inspired by the Pacific Northwest. In addition to Emily’s paintings, the show will feature a collection of ceramics that highlight the utility and beauty of natural forms through traditional wheel-thrown and hand-built stoneware and porcelain. Reflecting and responding to place and space, Emily will present work in media from clay to fiber and wax. Work will be offered for sale throughout exhibition. In addition, the Arts Council will be offering workshops and outreach programming with Emily during October and early November. Keep checking the Arts Council website at for updated information. 510 Museum & ARTspace gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment.
