Really excited for this upcoming event. To close out 2014, one of my favorite Chicago artists just announced her upcoming show: An exhibit of her melted crayon paintings. The best part is, it’s taking place at one of my favorite local watering holes: The legendary Village Tap!
Sara Britton uses a variety of techniques, from acrylic to mixed media, but I’m encouraged that she’s focusing on the melted crayon technique for this show. To date, aside from her space-inspired efforts, these pieces have garnered the most acclaim. When I spoke to Sara about the show and what pushed her to pursue this phase in her career, she gave heartfelt thanks to her junior high art teacher, who she claims “taught me everything from brainstorming, to pushing limits and working with different mediums”.
