Opening Reception at Stock and Pantry
Jennifer Ament's encaustic paintings are no secret around here and there's an obvious reason why. In place of a paintbrush, Ament creates her abstract paintings with a blowtorch and a combination of beeswax, damar resin, and colored pigment—organic interpretations of minerals, landscapes, and celestial forms ensue. Join her at Stock and Pantry this Thursday evening from 5 to 8 for an opening reception. Ament will be the first artist of many hosted at the Capitol Hill boutique this year.
