Nuvo described Kathryn Dart’s first solo show as sincere and wrote that her work is typified by “abstraction, color, repeating patterns and the seductive hardened ooziness of the encaustic surfaces.”
A self-taught artist, Dart “fell in love with the encaustic process” and immediately knew she wanted to make art her job. Dart makes encaustic paintings and sculpture with melted beeswax in her studio at the Harrison Center for the Arts and also works two days a week here at Homespun: Modern Handmade!
Fun facts: 1. My closest friends and I still send handwritten letters to each other. 2. I ran a marathon with my mom last year. It hurt. 3. I was once in a Japanese hip hop dance group.
