Enjoy a two woman show at Sparrow Gallery's third annual encaustic invitational exhibition, featuring Shannon Amidon and Jaya King.
Shannon Amidon is an award winning artist from San Jose, CA. She creates mixed media artwork primarily concentrating on the ancient medium of encaustic painting. She incorporates natural, upcycled and repurposed materials into her artwork, breathing new life into objects that would otherwise be destined for a landfill. Using environmentally safe and sustainable practices is very important to her. In addition to upcycling discarded objects and materials she also makes her own paints using natural earth pigments and binders.
Jaya King is a California native based out of Sacramento. Her dynamic encaustic semi-abstracts marry both balance of technique and personal connection to the viewer. Jaya regularly lectures to art organizations across California. Her popular painting workshops give students the opportunity to grow as artists, face their fears and express their individuality. Currently, “Encaustic In-Depth: Beyond Black and White” ranks as her most influential, technique-driven and introspective workshop. Her enthusiasm for painting is infectious and it propels her and her students down a path of inspiration and understanding through creation.
