Long-time established artists, Mark and Julia Hamilton have been perfecting their use of the encaustic medium since 2011.  They create images of nature, and the abstraction of nature, by burning in and painting with multiple layers of wax.  Interesting natural and industrial elements, including pebbles, bark, nails and rivets are often incorporated in their pieces.  The resulting depth and texture takes the viewer to a peaceful and harmonious place. The show runs through  May 15.   There will be an opening reception on April 16th, 5-8 pm, during McMinnville’s Art and Wine Walk. Hours: 10am-5pm Mon-Sat; 10am-2pm. Sun.
