Encaustic artist, Patty Picco, will be at Penn Cove Gallery on Thursday, September 6, 2018, from 10am to 5pm, with tools of her trade. Patty considers herself a “Layerist”. Her work starts with the subtle textures of monotype prints or her own photographs. She may combine paint with her own hand-painted papers, paying special attention to the mood she is trying to convey. She continues the layering process with the addition of encaustic painting, using a mixture of beeswax, damar resin for hardening and pure pigment for color. Her inspiration comes from experiencing nature where she gains a deep appreciation for the energy we share.
Our 25th Anniversary celebration was a success, thank you to all who attended.
We are pleased to announce that the Whidbey News Group's 2019 The Best of Whidbey Readers Choice Awards has once again awarded Penn Cove Gallery Best Art Gallery. Thank you all those who voted us this honor.
