Ancient Painting Method Meets 21st Century Digital Photography
The Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minuteman Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach, highlights the work of Cocoa Beach resident Sally Auman as their August Featured Artist. An experienced traveler and award winning photographer, Sally combines Encaustic (Wax) Painting with Digital Photography to create unique images.
Sally explains.” Photography has always been part of my life since my father was a professional photographer in Cocoa Beach. For me photography is the beginning of my creative process. I may edit and print the photo, or alter the photo digitally, use photo transfer techniques, add oil paint, or embed it in encaustic wax. I am captivated by both my Florida surroundings and different places, cultures and history. My work always reflects my personal interpretation and my fascination with contemporary art prompts me to keep trying new things.”
The exhibit runs through the month of August. One of Sally’s pieces will be given away during the Studio’s open house on August 25th. The Studios of Cocoa Beach is a non-profit cooperative gallery features 25 plus local artists and offers a full schedule of workshops in a variety of techniques for both adults and children. The Studio is open Monday and Tuesday 10:30 – 3:30, Wednesday through Saturday 10:30 -8pm, and Sundays 11 am – 4pm.
