Sacred.  Encaustic (beeswax) on wood panel by Gregory Bell.

 

During the opening reception of SHADOWS, Gregory Bell offered an artist talk about the encaustic works depicting the wildlife found in coastal habitat of the area.

 

 

And, too, during the SHADOWS reception,  the artist was  inspired by FLYNN,   “the handsomest Kestrel around and one of the  WCNC Ambassador Birds!”    I will paint FLYNN next! — Gregory Bell 

 

At the opening reception of  SHADOWS on October 7th there was an  auction  of selected Neal Maine images.  More than $300 was raised in less than five minutes to benefit the  WCNC!!!
