Present Absence includes mixed media works including encaustic works. Encaustic is a technique where artists use warm wax and mix with colors to create works. Anfinson uses this process as a way to connect to the environment around her. She states that the work is “an effort to create a sense of awareness about [the] diminished ecosystem [in the tallgrass prairie].” Anfinson’s exhibit will also include multimedia video display and paper collage works.
Reception: First Friday in February, from 5-7 pm
On display: January 7 – February 28
