This Warren County Arts group meeting will feature a demonstration of Encaustic Painting by artist Maria Filosa. Maria Filosa was born in New York in 1957 and currently resides in Bangor, PA. She comes from a musical and creative family where she was introduced to the concept of handmade at a very young age. A designer and teacher for over 25 years, Maria uses a diverse array of art materials to create both flat and dimensional types of art. She has appeared in both print and on television numerous times demonstrating various methods of arts and crafts. Several of the techniques were of her own invention. Her current pieces are created using wax and pigment. This type of art is called Encaustic Painting. They consist of colorful abstracts, landscapes and florals. Her works will be available in both original and photographic prints. Maria has also combined some of her acrylic abstracts with the encaustic prints for a very unique piece of art. For the past 28 years, she has volunteered at Camp Can Do as Director of Arts and Crafts bringing her knowledge and peaceful nature to kids with cancer helping them create their own works of art, lots of smiles and a sense of accomplishment. Her artist signature is Meriya.
Refreshments will be served. The public is welcome and encouraged. Funding has been made possible, in part, by the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
