Friday Night "Bocce with the Artist" featuring Angela Hansen
Come by the Farm from 5-7pm for your chance to learn all about the fascinating medium of encaustic and enjoy a game of bocce ball!
Lake Country artist Angela Hansen grew up on a small horse ranch near the BC interior town of Quesnel. Angela completed her certificate of Design from Emily Carr College of Art and Design and a Bachelor of Design from ECIAD, and has been teaching art in the Central Okanagan for the past 13 years.
As an artist, Angela has worked with a variety of mediums, including charcoal, ink, acrylics, block-print, photography, and clay. For the last 5 years she has been working extensively with the “new” old medium of encaustic.
Encaustic, or melted beeswax, is a versatile and tactile painting medium. “What I find fascinating about this medium is that it is both sculptural and painterly,” says Hansen. “Encaustic paint has a warmth and luminosity to it and allows me to push the boundaries of what one would consider traditional painting…My work is a reflection of explorations with this intriguing medium and has most recently taken on sculptural qualities.”
