WOW Exhibition opening

12 November 2018

The Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition Centre will have an official opening for their latest exhibition on Sunday 18 November.

'Burning Passion' - An exhibition of encaustic works by Sandra Henderson is now on display in the gallery until 28 November.

Henderson moved to Penguin in 2013 from Perth, WA after teaching Art and English in WA Secondary Schools and Senior Campuses for 25 years.

Her earlier work was mainly very detailed water-colour and mixed media – from full sheet size down to miniatures.

She now enjoys exploring new media and techniques and this led to her excursion into the world of encaustic in January 2016.

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added.

The liquid of paste is then applied to the surface - usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.

The official opening of the exhibition will be on Sunday 18 November at 2pm by Anita Dow MP.

The exhibition is also open daily at the Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition Centre Gallery from 2nd - 28th November 2018 9am - 5pm.
