Carbondale Arts will host an opening reception for Incandescence on Feb. 24 from 6 to 8p.m. at the R2 Gallery located in The Launchpad. This exhibition showcases a new collection of encaustic paintings by artist and designer Erin Rigney as well as 9 Roaring Fork Valley glass artists, curated by Robert Burch. Featured glass artists include Jacqueline Balderson, Dylan Balderson, Wyatt Balderson, Deborah Flug, Mary Matchael, Lily Meadows, and TJ Ossola. Burch will also display his new glass and metal series titled 'Material Studies.' Rigney’s encaustic abstractions are an exploration of the atmospheric designs in shells and the unsung art that washes up upon our shores.
