Local Colors of Utah presents the encaustic wax painting of Doug Quillinan and the vivid photography of Shayne Shaw for our July featured artist show. Encaustic wax is an ancient painting technique that yields three-dimensional pieces of art that seem to come alive. Doug’s themes range from abstracts to wildlife, landscapes to seascapes. Shayne’s technical prowess with the camera is obvious at first glance. He specializes in well-crafted nightscapes – often featuring the Milky Way – as well as beautiful long-exposures. The opening reception for this show is July 17th, Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. There is a second artist reception the evening of Sugar House Art Walk, August 14th.
