We=B9re especially excited to be hosting Santa Fe artist Gail Rieke with a

Gail Rieke is an artist and teacher living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1993=
after years of exhibiting in nationally recognized galleries, she and her
husband Zachariah Rieke opened a studio/gallery in their home, where they
currently work and exhibit by invitation.

One of our most popular visiting instructors, Cynthia Winika, returns in
February for two encaustic workshops. Encaustic is one of the most
beautiful paints an artist can use. It is made from beeswax, tree resin, an=
pure pigment. It is applied molten and can be polished to an enamel-like
finish, as well as manipulated for a tremendous variety of surface qualitie=
and sculptural effects. This is the legendary paint used in the Fayum mummy
portraits of the 1st and 2nd centuries, yet its versatility has made it
every bit as much a 21st-century medium.

There are two classes. Encaustic Painting Techniques is Friday, Saturday an=
Sunday, Feb. 1=AD3, from 10=AD5. Encaustic Paint for Printmakers and Book
Artists is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 5=AD7, from 10-5 p.m.

Cynthia Winika is a multi-media artist who serves as encaustic workshop
coordinator and primary teacher for R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, New
York. She has led workshops at Oregon College of Arts and Crafts, Yale
University, San Francisco Art Institute, and Syracuse University. Her work
can be seen on the web at www.rfpaints.com.
