Pamela Hahn: An Almanac - Encaustic Painting and Mixed Media Collage

Share this



Thursday, 5 October 2017 to Monday, 30 October 2017
Friday, 6 October 2017 - 5:00pm

     Hahn’s work is inspired by 19th century Farmer’s Almanacs handed down through her family. The almanacs promised, “New, Useful and Entertaining Matter,” which included among other things, astrological calculations, weather predictions, poetry, and tips for farmers and housewives. The yearly publications provide a glimpse into life around 150 years ago that the artist found fascinating and touching. The titles of the pieces are direct quotes from the almanacs, for example: “No Time To Lose Now,” “Some Sun Some Showers,” “The Small Fruits,” and “Change in the Weather.”

     The artist incorporates oil, graphite, pastel, and ink with her wax technique to achieve rich and varied surfaces. The collages incorporate some original material from an already tattered almanac.

Partners Gallery is located at 335 N. Franklin Street in Fort Bragg and is open Wednesday through Monday 10 am to 5 pm and Sundays 10 am to 4 pm. 707 962-0233
