Angie has reinvented herself once again. A former student of MCAD, Angie has dabbled in about everything; pottery, clock making and painting. She got obsessed with encaustic (a process of heating dyed (bees)wax) a few years ago, and has finally got comfortable with the process. Encaustic is actually very ancient, and made popular with the Byzantine painters. The effects are rich in earth tones. I encourage you to check out her show, I’m sure it will sell out the first night.

The Blood of a Dog Clots in the Snow
My friend you are weary almost gone
limping in the apocalyptic winter
from memory to imagination
of airstrikes in the desert of forgiveness
Each day we had was so real
your soft fur my petting hands
our walks and runs along the mighty Sioux River
in search of glee
Now I have tears as you give me
one last yelp
